Synopsis

Great Escapes of WWII, Vol. III: Escape from Dunkirk
This video is part of a series that chronicles the greatest escapes of World War II. In the Battle at Dunkirk, the German army defeated the Allies, but the Allied forces made a successful retreat. This video considers historians' conflicting theories about why and how the British and French soldiers made their escape across the English Channel. Archival film footage, re-enactments, and personal recollections of survivors relate the dramatic story. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi

This video is part of a series that tells the story of some of the most spectacular escapes by soldiers during World War II. This episode is about the men aboard the U.S.S. Oklahoma. The ship was torpedoed and sank in just a few breathtaking minutes. Re-enactments and the personal recollections of survivors give a dramatic view of the chaotic events on board and in the sea, and of the sailors' incredible survival while awaiting the rescue that came some 30 hours later. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
