About this product
- DescriptionBack 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.
- Author BiographyArthur Gwynn-Browne served as an officer in the British army during World War II and later became a bursar at Magdalen College-Oxford.
