Last quote by Daniel Todman

The delusion that the UK stood bravely alone through the war means that there is a real risk of Britain believing it doesn’t need Europe to survive. Seventy-seven years ago this week, the evacuation began of British and Allied troops from Dunkirk. Driven back to the French coast by the German advance, it had seemed that few of them would escape. By 4 June 1940, a third of a million British and French servicemen had been rescued. It was the start of a remarkable summer, around which thick layers of mythology would accrete.feedback
