On the contrary, it was a Nazi victory. The British retreated.
The battle of Dunkirk was potentially a miracle but down sides to it make it seem liek a disaster, There was thousands of punds worth of weponary and battle waepons that could;NT be reproduced in time for the british srmy to fight the Germans, so i think that it was a disaster but the fact that 330,000 lives were saved is infact a miracle!
Yes it was "but if not" Biblical reference from the old testament.
What was the evacuation of the British and French soldiers from the French beaches of Dunkirk called?
Operation Dynamo (May 24 to June 4, 1940) Operation Dynamo, also informally referred to as the Miracle at Dunkirk.
I think the Maginot line was entirely staffed by the French. It was. Before the British retreated to Dunkirk, the Maginot Line had already fallen.
In May 1940, the British Army had been fighting in support of the French against the German invaders of France. British forces were cut off from the other forces near the port of Dunkirk, and were in danger of being killed/ captured. The Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, ordered any available ship to pick up the forces at Dunkirk. Over 900 small boats responded, and rescued 338,226 soldiers. Churchill later called this "The miracle at Dunkirk".
uhh why cant anyone answer this i also need the answer
Dunkirk was the place in France from which about 340.000 British and French troops were evacuated to England after fleeing the advancing German army. It wasn't really a 'battle' as such, but you could call it a rearguard action. the british at the time called it 'The Miracle of Dunkirk' in that so many men were snatched from being prisoners of war.
Canadians were not part of the Miracle of Dunkirk when the Brits and French escaped from Dunkirk via 900 different boats and ships. They were however part of the garrison that liberated Dunkirk in 1944. The 2nd Canadian Infantry Division tried to liberate Dunkerque (French spelling of their town). The Germans however refused to give up town because it was their fortress and a port for them. The 1st Czechoslovak Armoured Brigade came alongside the… Read More

Dunkirk was not a miracle. Around May 25th-June 4th of 1940, (during World War II) when between 300,000-400,000 members (estimates vary) of the British Expeditionary Force, along with French and Belgian soldiers, were rescued from the beaches by various military and civilian fishing crafts from the oncoming German military.
The BEF (British Expeditionary Force) was thoroughly beaten by the advancing German Army in France in 1940. The army retreated to the coast at Dunkirk where they were embarked on boats of all sizes and ferried back to the south coast of England. Around 335000 British and French forces escaped but they had to leave most of their equipment and ammunition behind. It was probably the worst defeat that the British Army has ever suffered… Read More
The Miracle of Dunkirk was the evacuation of more than 300,000 members of the British Expeditionary Force across the English Channel and enabled them to fight again on another day. About 26,000 French troops were also evacuated and they became the nucleus of the Free French. About 4,500 wounded were also evacuated from the beach at Dunkirk.
Yes. Over 200,000 allied troops were evacuated from Dunkirk as the German army advanced. Has the Germans caught them, the troops would have be massacred in what may have been a decisive victory for the Axis.
http://www.answers.com/topic/adolf-hitler's order of May 24 halting the advance of German armored forces into Dunkirk. This was the main reason for the so called "miracle of Dunkirk"...it was certainly no miracle....just a combination of a mistake by Hitler and the courage of 100s of British civilian small boat owners who volunteered to cross the English Channel to pick up British and French troops who were trapped with their backs to the sea. All under bombardment by… Read More
Although the Battle of Dunkirk was one of the biggest defeats the British Army had ever suffered, 338,000 Allied soldiers were evacuated from the Dunkirk area when they thought that they would only be able to rescue about one tenth of that number. The rescue meant that the British were able to regroup and establish a nucleus for continuing the war.
It was not a miracle, but it did enable nearly 200,000 British soldiers to escape capture, though without their weapons, and it provided a core of experienced men to expand the British Army. Other than that, there was no great impact.
During World War II, the "miracle at Dunkirk" was the successful evacuation of over 300,000 soldiers (mostly British and French) by sea from the small French port of Dunkirk, which was at the same time surrounded by units of the German Army. Although historians do not fully agree on the details, the miraculous evacuation seems to have been made possible in part by an order from Hitler that held back German armored units from advancing… Read More

In the summer of 1940, 338000 British and French troops were evacuated from the beaches at Dunkirk in Northern France after having been thoroughly beaten by superior German Forces. It was one of the worst defeats the British Army has ever suffered but propaganda at the time made it sound like a victory. There is no doubt that the logistics of the evacuation were nothing short of a miracle.
Dunkirk can be seen as a disaster and a triumph. British solidiers lost many of their equipment and lots of people died. Although around 330,000 solidiers managed to evacuate across the british channel. Dunkirk managed to persuade more people into the war though with propoganda and the countries spririt If Dunkirk was a success who knows we may not off won the war.

in my opinion, a defeat, because they basically just ran away. but at the time it was viewed as a victory, because it saved the lives of many soldiers. it was a defeat for the the Germans because they retreated, it was a victory for the British because if it werent for all those fishermen and sailors the soilders would of been killed

The 'Miracle' of Dunkirk, while not a victory, did return many of the BEF to Britain along with a significant number of French soldiers. Op Dynamo abandoned all heavy equipment in France, but it did show that the German Blitzkreig could be opposed. Indeed the counter attack by British Armour around Arras had been very effective, Rommel reported being attacked by 'hundreds' of tanks, and had the French defence been more flexible & dynamic the… Read More

Dunkirk was a political disaster but a strategic and morale success for Britain Dunkirk for the British was a miraculous escape, but as Churchill said wars are not won by defeats. It is probable the lack of committing the panzers from the German point of view is that Hitler needed to use them in future operations & could ill afford their loss at that stage of WW2. The escape to freedom of over 330 000… Read More
About 350,000 (mainly British but some French) troops were evacuated from the Dunkirk beaches. At the time, the government thought that they might be able to rescue about 10% of that number.

At the end of that episode, he said: "I believe the miracle of Dunkirk had a far wider significance than anybody imagined at the time… Read More

there was no point. The German army had driven back the British expaditionary forces into a full retreat, until the british were pushed back to the beaches at Dunkirk, probably with the intention of slaughtering them. The British military at that time were neither equipt or prepared to rescue their forces. The civilian population of England started a rescue effort on their own, using private boats and launches, they sailed across to the beach at… Read More
