In the late spring of 1940, the Battle of Dunkirk resulted in, arguably, the greatest evacuation in military history. Hundreds of thousands of Allied troops, stranded on the beach, completely cornered by Axis forces – sitting ducks with no escape in sight… or so it seemed.
As the evacuation of Dunkirk approached, tanks played a pivotal role in the early stages of the Second World War. World of Tanks has partnered with Warner Bros. to remember the seminal World War II event that inspired Christopher Nolan’s latest cinematic masterpiece, Dunkirk.
Together, we share a passion for honoring and preserving these incredible events, feats of humanity, and acts bravery that defined that era.
