NameThe Army At War. The Defence of Calais. (Erik Linklater)
CategoryAction on Land
DepartmentMinistry Of Information
Issued ForWar Office
Published Dec/1941
Size12 x 18
DescriptionThis is an interim report. The whole story of the defence of Calais will never be told, because much of it was enacted by little groups of men who, with no witness but the enemy, fought till they were killed. But many survived the action and are now prisoners of war. Some day they will tell, more fully and more accurately than I have done, the story of Calais.
