I don’t see it as a war film. I see it as a survival story.

In 1940, at the French port of Dunkirk, more than 300,000 trapped Allied troops were dramatically rescued from destruction at the hands of Nazi Germany by an extraordinary seaborne evacuation. The true history of the soldiers, sailors, airmen and civilians involved in the nine-day skirmish has passed into legend.

Now, the story Winston Churchill described as a 'miracle' is narrated by bestselling author Joshua Levine in its full, sweeping context, including new interviews with veterans and survivors. Told from the viewpoints of land, sea and air, Joshua Levine's Dunkirk is a dramatic account of a defeat that paved the way to ultimate victory and preserved liberty for generations to come.

Now a major motion picture written and directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh and Mark Rylance.

‘Joshua Levine’s background as an actor, barrister and historian makes him the ideal interlocutor.  The actor catches his interviewees moods, putting them at their ease and teasing out more than they seemed willing to reveal at the outset. The lawyer draws out the implications of what they are saying, and the historian puts it all into perspective.’  –  Sunday Times

A former actor, journalist and popular historian Joshua Levine’s books include: A Secret History of the Blitz, Operation Fortitude, Forgotten Voices of the Somme, Forgotten Voices of Dunkirk and Forgotten Voices of the Blitz.
