One Rescue. Nine Days. 340,000 Lives Saved.

Illustrated throughout. The exclusive leather-bound Collector's Edition.


On May 10, 1940, Nazi Germany launched an astonishing Blitzkrieg assault on Western Europe. Sixteen days later, Allied forces were decimated and divided, with some half-million British and French troops facing certain destruction on the French coast at Dunkirk, where the water was too shallow for the Royal Navy to reach them.

Many believed Britain would have to surrender – and that the Nazis had conquered Europe.

It didn't turn out that way.

The Battle of Dunkirk proved a watershed event, an operation of imagination, tenacity, and shared sacrifice that transformed military defeat into a moral victory that enabled the British people to carry on the fight against Hitler and ultimately triumph.

Now, Easton Press and the editors of TIME-LIFE present the powerful commemorative, Dunkirk, a superlative leather-bound Collector’s Edition.

The “Miracle of Dunkirk.”


Both TIME and LIFE covered Dunkirk, and Dunkirk draws on the magazines' unmatched archives of reporting and stunning on-the-scene photo-journalism to chronicle one of the war's most crucial and heroic actions.

These pages revisit how the British and French forces came to be 'hopelessly' trapped on the coast of France and how a fatal Nazi tactical error and a hastily assembled armada of mostly small civilian vessels enabled over 300,000 of the stranded Allied troops to escape.

Dunkirk remembers the 'ordinary' citizens in small craft who braved harrowing German air and naval attacks to ferry soldiers from Dunkirk beach, as well as the British and French troops who fiercely held back the advancing German army, sacrificing themselves so that their comrades would survive to fight another day.

Dunkirk also reflects on the decisive importance of the massive operation, both at the time and later, how it inspired Winston Churchill's legendary “We shall fight on the beaches” speech, emboldened the Allies during the war's darkest days, and become a touchstone in British culture.

Dunkirk remembered in a superb Collector’s Edition.

Easton Press has created for Dunkirk a volume that honors and preserves the memory of the dramatic battle -- an Easton Press Collector’s Edition, the finest in traditional hand-crafted heirloom-quality books.

The binding is of premium leather, specially selected for beauty and permanence. The spine features the traditional raised “hubs” and is embossed with 22kt gold.

The vintage maps, illustrations, and unforgettable World War II photographs are preserved on acid-neutral paper formulated to reveal every detail of these historic images but to not turn brittle with age. And the pages are not merely glued into the binding but thread-sewn for superior strength.

Moiré endsheets, gilded page ends, a satin ribbon page marker – every detail of this superb volume confirms that this is a book for the ages, the work of American craftsman devoted to excellence and the highest standards of traditional fine bookmaking.

The Easton Press Collector's Edition Dunkirk is a volume that will be cherished by – and make a great gift for – anyone interested in World War II, military history, or true tales of heroic perseverance.
