£29.95 £11.99

The main theme of this book is the British Expeditionary Forceand the defences it constructed in France during September 1939-May 1940. Although there have been many books written about the BEF, virtually all deal with the campaign in France and Flanders that cumulated in the evacuation from Dunkirk. No detailed account has ever been published on the defences the BEF built in the Secteur Défensive de Lille – the front allocated to it by the French – along the Franco-Belgium border.
