Below the latest trailer has been attached:
It is a place in France where the battle of Dunkirk took place between the Nazi Army and the Allied Forces during the Second World War in the year 1940. It was fought for the defence and evacuation of British and Allied forces in Europe. Took place from 26th May and 4 June, 1940. That is why this battle is also known famously as Dunkirk Evacuation.
The Story Of Dunkirk That Inspired Christopher Nolan:
In the beginning of May, 1940 the German army had invaded Ardennes part of France and then drove towards English Channel. At that time, around 400,000 men of British, French, Belgian, and Canadian troops were cut off and surrounded by the German army at the beaches of Dunkirk. When this happened British Prime Minister Winston Churchill called the events in France “a colossal military disaster”. He also stated that “the whole root and core and brain of the British Army” had been stranded at Dunkirk and seemed about to perish or be captured.
The Dunkirk Evacuation aka Operation Dynamo was the most significant operation of its time that shaped the history. If the trapped allied troops were not evacuated, it only meant them being massacred by the Nazi Army. That might had replaced the British Government by a new one which would have been supportive to the Germans. On 26th May, Churchill ordered Dynamo to begin. By then a a large no of men had already departed. This evacuation took place till 28th May, until on 29th May a miracle happened.
On 29th May the German army stopped stopped marching towards Dunkirk. The Panzer divisions were asked to withdraw. Hitler was weakened by overconfidence about his army and he reduced the infantry there. This mistake of Hitler gave plenty of time to Allies to rescue 30,000 men. 68,000 were rescued the following day. Another 10,000-odd overnight and 65,000 the day after. The rescue operation went on until the 4th of June with five countries from the Allied forces working to evacuate every living soul from Dunkirk.
