Those who were there retell the story of the Dunkirk evacuation over seven nights in the Second World War. The men and equipment trapped in France were needed desperately back home in England, and 222 naval vessels and 665 civilian craft were deployed - without any air cover - to ferry 338,226 men back home. Those involved in Operation Dynamo provide their personal recollections of one of the most audacious schemes in military history.
