The Battle of Dunkirk. British soldiers were evacuated by the Royal Navy and by private fishing boats and Yachts which were commandeered to help the evacuation effort. Tens of thousands of British soldiers were evacuated and avoided being cut off from the rest of Europe by the German Blitzkrieg, which charged right through Belgium and into France.
