Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Dunkirk by Hugh Sebag-Montefiore, read by Roy McMillan.
Hugh Sebag-Montefiore's Dunkirk: Fight to the Last Man tells the story of the rescue in May 1940 of British soldiers fleeing capture and defeat by the Nazis at Dunkirk.
Dunkirk was not just about what happened at sea and on the beaches. The evacuation would never have succeeded had it not been for the tenacity of the British soldiers who stayed behind to ensure they got away. Men like Sergeant Major Gus Jennings, who died smothering a German stick bomb in the church at Esquelbecq in an effort to save his comrades, and Captain Marcus Ervine-Andrews VC, who single-handedly held back a German attack on the Dunkirk perimeter, thereby allowing the British line to form up behind him. Told to stand and fight to the last man, these brave few battalions fought in whatever manner they could to buy precious time for the evacuation. Outnumbered and outgunned, they launched spectacular and heroic attacks time and again, despite ferocious fighting and the knowledge that for many only capture or death would end their struggle.
Hugh Sebag-Montefiore was a barrister before becoming a journalist and then an author. He wrote the best-selling Enigma: The Battle for the Code. One of his ancestors was evacuated from Dunkirk.

"Sebag-Montefiore tells [the story] with gusto, a remarkable attention to detail and an inexhaustible appetite for tracking down the evidence." (Richard Ovary, The Telegraph)

Excellent. Only one issue

During the start of the book they make clear that the print book provides maps and you should.purchase it to help.follow the story...Why can't they be provided as PDF documents that you can download?

Other than that, absolutely stunning detail and great narration

Excellent in-depth look at a pivotal period

This book is a historical tour de force. It has all the hallmarks of the author's other works, including deep and thorough research combined with appropriate and insightful firsthand accounts. One minor note: access to detailed maps of the relevant regions of Belgium and France would greatly enhance the listening experience.

Informative but a bit bland

Great detail about opening of the war and the events that followed. Some parts were too indepth and bland for my liking. Overall a good book.
