Pic of the Day: “As you know, the British Expeditionary Force is trapped between the enemy and the sea. 400,000 men are crowded on the beaches under bombardment from artillery and planes. Their only chance to escape annihilation rests with you. Your destination is Dunkirk. It’s my duty to tell you that the effort is not without risk. You are asked to cross 40 miles of open sea, many of you in small boats that are far from seaworthy. Shore guns and enemy aircraft are going to make it tough for you. Any of you who wish to withdraw may do so now.”
