The miracle of Dunkirk formed the backdrop of our partnership with Warner Bros. for Christopher Nolan’s World War II action thriller, DUNKIRK. 


This short film from Wargaming covers the efforts of the Royal Navy to protect and transport the British Expeditionary Forces still stuck in Dunkirk.

How come when the Brits had to retreat it was seen as heroic, but when the French had to do it everyone started throwing shade?    Retreat is just a maneuver like any other.

It was seen as heroic by their countrymen thanks too Churchill's efforts. They believed that once the Germans took mainland Europe, England would be next. How would you keep up morale of both country and army for the defense of the homeland if you shame them before you need them? It's only natural that the Brits would throw shade at the french because who else could they get mad at? The British came over to help the french but the french, British, and Belgians lost. When the french were trying to leave it was seen as them completely giving up and running away, as for the British they were simply retreating back to home base to get ready for their own defense.
