This timeline poster focuses on the events of Operation Dynamo – the operation to evacuate Allied soldiers from the beaches of Dunkirk in WW2.

This poster shows the events from the start of the war to Winston Churchill’s famous ‘We Shall Fight on the Beaches’ speech in June 1940. It would make a fantastic addition to any classroom display on the Second World War.

Of course, the Dunkirk Evacuation has been brought to the fore by the recent Hollywood Blockbuster Dunkirk, which features the acting debut of former One Direction star Harry Styles. This is a great opportunity to spark your students’ interest in 20th century history.

Why not capitalise on this interest with a history school trip to Dunkirk, where your students can learn more about Operation Dynamo?
