The Dunkirk evacuation, dubbed Operation Dynamo, saw 338,000 troops rescued from the beaches of northern France between May 27 and June 4, 1940.
It came after the speed of the German advance through the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and France left nearly half a million British and French troops trapped there.
The rescue was led by the Royal Navy, which drafted in ships and boats of every size.
Described as a ''miracle of deliverance'' by British wartime prime minister Winston Churchill, it is seen as one of several events in 1940 that determined the eventual outcome of the war.
