Re: How about more annoying the French!
"To be fair we celebrate Dunkirk as if it was a victory when in fact it was our troops running away as fast as they could. That's not intended as a slur on their bravery, it was the right thing to do it's just that we seem to act as if it was some great victory."
As Churchill said at the time, "We must be very careful not to assign to this deliverance the attributes of a victory".
(Churchill if I recall did want to sent the whole of the RAF to France at the start of the war but his war chiefs refused, wisely.)
