The defence of Calais in late May 1940 remains one of the most striking examples of selfless courage and sacrifice. Airey Neave, then a young Gunner officer, who fought in the battle, was wounded and captured at Calais. In the post-war years he wrote Flames of Calais, the definitive account of the battle which has stood the test of time thanks to the Author's detailed first-hand knowledge and authoritative style.
