Coach Tours 4 or 5 Days

Specialist Battlefield Guide on Every Tour. Prices from £339

Discover “The miracle of Dunkirk” and the story of the "V" weapons on this Leger Holidays Dunkirk battlefield coach tour. Dunkirk has become one of the most enduring images of World War 2. Beyond all expectation, the British Expeditionary Force was evacuated from France in May and June 1940. The “miracle” was achieved through improvisation and outstanding organisation, but it was also reliant on the bravery of sailors, airmen and soldiers, many of whom held back German forces in order  to allow the  evacuation to take place.
