movie facts

The Second World War began on September 1, 1939 and ended on September 2, 1945. It involved a majority of the world’s countries that formed the Allies and the Axis, two opposing military allies. Many of the countries spent their economic, industrial, and scientific resources for the war effort, involving both military and civilian participation. The Dunkirk evacuation can cite its success to the involvement of many civilian boats in order to ferry the trapped Allied soldiers. From the 7,669 Allied soldiers that were picked up, the number was added to by the little ships of Dunkirk, which were 850 private boats, helping rescue over 336,000 British and French soldiers. These were merchant marine boats, fishing boats, pleasure crafts, yachts, and lifeboats. These historic elements were represented clearly in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, which even veterans of the event praised the film for its accurate portrayal of the evacuation.
