In support of the upcoming epic action thriller Dunkirk, written and directed by Christopher Nolan, Wargaming.net has partnered with Warner Bros. to remember the seminal World War II event that inspired the motion picture.
The evacuation, known as the "Miracle of Dunkirk" took place from May 26th until June 4th, 1940, when hundreds of thousands of Allied soldiers were trapped by advancing German forces on the beaches of Dunkirk, France. As the battle raged around them, many were transported to safety by the combined efforts of both military and civilian vessels. The history of this massive mobilization and the hopeful, personal stories of those involved will unfold in the film Dunkirk.
We believe Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk will be an unforgettable film about one of the most momentous endeavors of World War II and we are honored to be in a partnership with a creative endeavor that shares our passion for honoring and preserving the incredible events that define that era.
Join “Remember Dunkirk” anniversary events to commemorate the 77th anniversary of this crucial turning point in WWII. The action intensifies in July, as even more events come to World of Warships: a series of flags, Operations, and more await all who enter the battle.
From filmmaker Christopher Nolan comes the epic action thriller Dunkirk. The film is being produced by Nolan and Emma Thomas, with Jake Myers serving as executive producer.

Trapped on the beach with their backs to the sea they face an impossible situation as the enemy closes in.
