Too bad politics and war go hand in hand, Dunkirk was just a political move by Britain to show France that we're right with you brother, yeah right. If Britain wanted to show France that we're behind you all the way they would have sent a lot more troops. But maybe that's a good thing when you think about it. Imagine trying to get two million troops across the channel, and good luck with that.

This is not the movie that is in theaters. As with most Brit film, it starts rather slow and seemingly a bit disjointed as they "set the scene". Be patient with the first episode and you'll be rewarded with the last 2. We learned a lot that we didn't know. Well worth seeing.

Saw it in the theatre a week before it was available to me
Great movie but with it being so realistic it's very hard to watch

This is probably the best package of WW-II information (on DVD) you're ever going to run across. Brilliant.

Wonderful collection of documentaries from the BBC. Some of them I had already seen but enjoyed watching them again.
