This superbly illustrated book captures the dramatic action of May and June 1940.

The speed and ferocity of the German onslaught took the Allies by surprise as Hitler's land and air forces annihilated the inferior opposition. After 9 months stalemate the collapse was cataclysmic and Holland and Belgium quickly fell leaving the British and French forces outflanked and outfought.

Panic set in and huge numbers of civilian refugees clogged the roads making the Allies? withdrawal even more precarious. The miracle of Dunkirk saved vast numbers of British and French forces but could not prevent previously unseen images of Rommel's Ghost Division.
