Back in print after 50 years, this book was the first written
chronicle of the evacuation of Dunkirk published by a participant.
Written in a modernist style reminiscent of Gertrude Stein, it has
been hailed as a unique piece of battle literature. Absorbing,
affecting, and often humorous, the account juxtaposes the
terrifying aerial bombardment on the beach at Dunkirk with the
surreal calm of the England to which the survivors returned.
Additional material includes excerpts from Gwyne-Brown's proposal
for a book about the London Blitz.
