Flames of Calais : A Soldiers Battle 1940 Hardback



The defence of Calais in May/June 1940 was a superb example of selfless courage and sacrifice.

Sent by Churchill to divert the Germans from Dunkirk and so save the British Army, 30 Infantry Brigade had orders not to evacuate or surrender.

Airey Neave, later to be Margaret Thatcher's right hand man until his assassination in 1979, was one of those who fought, was wounded and captured there and his account remains the classic.
