Engelsk militærhistorie. Om det britiske -franske forsvar af Calais i de kritiske forårsdage i 1940, da det lykkedes at evakuere en væsentlig del af de britisk-franske hærstyrker- the British Expeditionary Force in France - fra strandene ved Dunkirk, eller Dunkerque, bl.a. som følge af det modige og vedholdende forsvar af Calais - "a truly memorable defence" overfor den fremrykkende tyske hær. Ca. 3000 mand deltog i forsvaret af Calais den 25. maj 1940, men efter 4 dages kamp måtte garnisonen overgive sig, og da var kun 60 tilbage - alle øvrige var døde, sårede eller taget tilfange. Der er derfor meget få samtidige dokumenter. Der blev skrevet rapporter i de tyske POW-fangelejre, og der er official minutes og telegrammer i Public Record Office, men det meste af bogen bygger på hidtil upubliseret materiale og private papirer. "A brave, brilliant book about the brave and memorable feat of arms". Forfatteren selv var med ved Calais og modtog DSO, OBE og MC og desuden den franske tapperhedsmedalje Croix de Guerre, den hollandske Order of Oranje Nassau og den amerikanske Bronze Star. Calais fik direkte af Churchill besked på at holde stand så længe som overhovedet muligt, og det hævdes at evakueringen ved Dunkirk ikke ville have kunne lykkedes hvis ikke forsvarerne af Calais havde kæmpet så tappert, men senere er der - selvfølgelig - rejst tvivl - "was the stand at Calais a costly mistake with both sides either underestimating or overestimating the significance of Calais at that stage of war?" Bogen søger også at besvare dette spørgsmål

The flames of Calais by Airey Neave ( Book )
3 editions published between 1972 and 2004 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A Soldier's Battle, 1940... The defence of Calais in late May 1940 remains one of the most striking examples of selfless courage and sacrifice. Winston Churchill, in one of his first actions as Prime Minister, ordered 29 Brigade across the Channel as a desperate diversionary measure to save the British Expeditionary Force from wholesale annihilation. The Brigade had orders not to evacuate or surrender, and casualties were extremely heavy. Airey Neave, who was wounded and captured at Calais, has written a definitive first-hand account of the battle, which has stood the test of time

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Andrée de Jongh was a young artist in Brussels when German troops marched into Belgium in May 1941. Her father dubbed her the?Little Cyclone', because she was so determined to make things happen. Inspired by Edith Cavell, the British nurse shot dead by the Germans during the First World War, the 24-year-old de Jongh nursed wounded allied servicemen. She then set up the Comet Line to smuggle trapped soldiers and airmen through France and across the Pyrenees into Spain. When the first group never arrived, the Little Cyclone did the job herself: she turned up at the British consulate in

The Author, who as a senior member of Mrs. Thatcher's Government was tragically assassinated by the IRA, had the most distinguished of war records. Wounded and taken prisoner in the desperate fighting at Calais in 1940, he became a compulsive escaper and the first one of the very few to make a 'home-run' from Colditz Castle. Thereafter he rejoined the fighting serving in France and Holland before becoming a member of the International Military Tribunal at the Nuremburg War Crimes trials. There he was to meet the most notorious members of the Nazi hierarchy as they faced justice and, in many cas
