There are problems with this scenario: it cannot be set-up using the standard terrain tiles of Memoir '44 and the selected extensions. There are too many terrains of one or more types. Please contact the author.

Historical Background:
The Battle of Dunkirk was the defense and evacuation of British and Allied forces in Europe from 26, May to 4 June, 1940. The battle had begun in earnest on May 10 and the Germans quickly advanced to the English Channel. A series of Allied counterattacks failed to sever the German spearhead which reached the coast on 20 May, separating the BEF, the French 1st Army and the Belgium Army further north from the majority of French troops south of the German penetration. After reaching the channel, the Germans swung north along the coast, threatening to capture the ports and trap the British and French troops before they could evacuate to Britain.
