In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of Dunkirk last week, the BBC posted a Website devoted to the lore and fact of this famous British retreat -- one that Winston Churchill and the rest of the English people managed to "rewrite" as a triumph of the British spirit over the German war machine. The site offers eleven feature stories that include interviews with veterans who were at Dunkirk, reports on recent observances, an analysis of the propaganda war that the British press mounted in the wake of the retreat, and descriptions of the conditions on the beachhead as soldiers waited for transport, sitting ducks for German artillery. A "slideshow" also presents a handful of photos from the operation.
