Just as he is making progress, the Germans invade and the Allied defences in Belgium collapse in the face of the Blitzkrieg. With the British Army in headlong retreat, Joe’s platoon is forced to fight a series of desperate rearguard actions against overwhelming odds.

Cut off from their regiment and captured, Joe and his aide Corporal Smythe narrowly escape a massacre at the hands of the SS. Fleeing through occupied territory, they struggle to reach Dunkirk in the hope of a boat to England. Meanwhile, a different fate awaits Yvette…
