Are you suggesting DeGaulle was a coward or Dunkirk was a huge victory ?Kindly elaborate .
Many Britons forget (unlike in the propaganda movie called 'Dunkirk') that it is actually the frogs and the cheese eaters who sacrificed themselves to cover the retreat of allied troops and avoided them total annihilation.
Neither they know French soldiers were desperatly containing German reinforcements for days in Lille from reaching Dunkirk..... 30 to 40K soldiers outnumbered and outgunned fighting desperatly an already lost fight against entire German divisions.... which allowed more soldiers to be saved from Dunkirk.....
They love to make fun about the French,but neither their expeditionary corps did great at the beginning of the conflict,in fact it did worse. Many forget again they would have suffered the same fate of France if they weren't an island with no direct connection to the European mainland.
Difference with the next conflict is that Britain will not have millions and millions of Asians to fight for the 'King'.... sorry,the 'Queen'. @Guynextdoor @Amal
