This volume in the official History of the Second World War, United Kingdom Military Series, is primarily concerned with the operations of the B.E.F. in the campaign in the West in the spring of 1940. Attention is also paid to the Navy and R.A.F., which were instrumental in rescuing what was left of the defeated force, and the author has made good use of the German materials on the campaign.
