    The RAF's vital role in the Dunkirk evacuation

    On 26 May 1940, Prime Minister Winston Churchill ordered the start of Operation Dynamo the evacuation of more than 330,000 Allied troops from the beaches of Dunkirk during WWII. RAF Fighter Command began to operate patrols from Boulogne to Dunkirk and the operations were to continue for the next nine days during the evacuation. Here we reflect on the events that unfolded on the shores of France. https://www.rafbf.org/news-and-blogs...ource=facebook

    A very complex operation, very organized - about 1000 ships participated, but it ended with minimal losses during the transportation itself. In fact, this success helped the Allies to revive their spirits despite numerous defeats.
