The British Expeditionary Force, 1939-40, Hardback Book

The British Expeditionary Force, 1939-40 Hardback


Between September 1939 and June 1940, the British Expeditionary Force confronted the German threat to France and Flanders with a confused mind-set, an uncertain skills-set and an uncompetitive capability.

This book explores the formation's origins, the scale of defeat in France and the campaign's considerable legacy.
