war. The first of these was the evacuation of\Dunkerque, which although 
it was a defeat, is also recognized-as a great military and moral achieve- |

the shores of France. Lord Gort’s report describes this incident in the 
following words, ‘‘on being satisfied that no troops were left on shore 
they (Alexander and a senior naval officer) left for England.” He took
