What was the rescue at Dunkirk?
The British Expeditionary Forces were assisting France in defense against the invasion by Germany. The situation became hopeless and the BEF tried to find a way to escape back to England. They withdrew to Dunkirk and asked England to send ships to pull them out. England sent as many military vessels and that was not enough. So civilian fishermen and boaters crossed the Channel to bring them back. General Harold R. L. G. Alexander was sent to Dunkirk to lead the evacuation. Before this, he had effected the pull-out of Burma. He did such a good job of preventing un-necessary losses, that he was knighted and promoted to command all the Allied forces in the Mediterranean.
