it was amazing

I loved this book! History is a passion of mine, and to read this story about the British retreat from Dunkirk, it felt like I was right there with them. Vivid and entertaining! The author of this book is most famous for writing the classic Titanic tale "A Night to Remember," so it was fitting to learn from him that Charles Lightoller was a civilian sailor who also helped the British Navy with the use of his private ship during his nation's rescue of her soldiers. Who was Charles Lightoller? Why, he was the Second Officer who had served on the RMS Titanic! Goes to show that history is connected in ways one never suspects. A great read!
