The Defence of Calais

In stock! Usually ships within 24 hours.

In May 1940, with British troops being evacuated from the beaches at Dunkirk, the ancient port of Calais stood on the critical western flank of the Anglo-French lines. In a desperate bid to shore up the flank, Churchill committed the British 30th Infantry Brigade to defend Calais to the last. What ensued was a heroic struggle that is writ large in the annals of British military History. Here Robert Avery presents a PDF of fourteen historical scenarios for I Ain’t Been Shot Mum that brings to light those events in that “last ditch” over sixty years ago.
