The campaign of 1940 which culminated in the British evacuation at Dunkirk and the French surrender at Compiegne remains one of the most controversial of World War II. Professor Brian Bond of the Department of War Studies, King's College, London has assembled a team of distinguished scholars in this book of essays on the campaign of 1940. Each essay has extensive footnotes that list the best and most recent books and articles on each topic.
