Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Not fair.

British troops were sacrificed to protect the beaches, the RAF was so weakened protecting the beaches that it nearly lost us the Battle of Britain.

PLUS, over 100,000 french troops were evacuated, most of whom were immediately re-patriated on the Atlantic coast, just in time to surrender. So of 300,000 troops saved, the sacrifice by troops of all armies and the RAF to protect 1/3 of that effort was wasted.
