Dunkirk - Locator Map

Dunkirk - also spelled Dunkerque - is located in northern France.  During late May and early June, of 1940, it was the scene of a disaster-in-the-making when about 400,000 retreating Allied soldiers were pushed into the area's narrow confines by invading German forces. 

Their only means of escape was by sea.
