Withdrawal from Dunkirk, June 1940
This painting depicts the action between 20 May and 4 June that summer, when 366,162 men of the British Expeditionary Force and Allied forces were evacuated to England under difficult conditions. The port of Dunkirk and the two moles, or large jetties that pointed out seawards, were the main evacuation points, although many were also taken off the beaches west and north of the town. The evacuation was hindered by aircraft attacks and the shellfire from German artillery positions.
