Disembark Spirit of Discovery after breakfast. The beaches of Dunkirk A miracle of deliverance" Sir Winston Churchill The world in which we live today was shaped by the success of Operation Dynamo. This seven-night cruise has been arranged to coincide with the 80th anniversary of this heroic mission. At the height of World War II the Allies were facing a monumental defeat at the hands of the rapidly advancing German troops, something Churchill feared would be `the greatest military disaster in our long history.' With hundreds of thousands of troops penned along the northern coast of France and Belgium in May 1940, British military leaders decided their only option was to evacuate across the Channel. Learn how the operation was masterminded and carried out and visit some of the key locations involved, not least making a poignant visit to the vast expanse of sand stretching to the east of Dunkirk where many thousands of lives were lost, but so many more were saved. Explore ashore: Sail the English Channel looking out for the iconic White Cliffs of Dover Venture onto the sands of Dunkirk where one of the most pivotal moments of World War II unfolded Explore the labyrinth of tunnels underneath Dover Castle, from where Operation Dynamo was plotted.
