Dunkirk The Movie

During the movie I said, “I guess the All-England Antique Boat Club only has about thirty members, because it looks like that’s all the boats they could scare up.”

I went home and looked it up, because I would have thought there were “thousands”. Wikipedia says there were 700 civilian small boats at Dunkirk. Appoximately 330,000 men were evacuated from the beach. What percentage of them were evacuated by small boats?

I thought it was a thoughtful and enjoyable movie, though I agree with your criticisms.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
