Product description

Duty Calls: Dunkirk by James Holland is a gripping true-to-life story about one of the most dramatic events of World War II.

‘YOU WANTED TO SEE SOME ACTIONWELL YOU’RE GOING TO GET IT NOW. YOU’RE GOING TO GET IT NOW ALL RIGHT.’

Friday 24th May, 1940

Private Johnny Hawke, aged sixteen, awakens to artillery fire.

Hours later, Stukas scream down from the sky. Messerschmit fighters roar towards his regiment. Trucks burst into flames.

Now men and mules lay dead and dying, severed limbs twisted grotesquely as blood soaks the cobbled streets.

Young Private Hawke just wants to do his duty and serve his country. But as he – and his fellow soldiers – prepare to stop the German advance, there’s only one question on everyone’s lips.

HOW WILL THEY SURVIVE?

‘Holland is a superb historian who knows his stuff’ – Daily Telegraph
