"All day long and during the night evacuation continued. Rescue vessels raced across the Channel loaded with men to the fullest capacity as fast as conditions would permit, steamed back at full speed across the narrow strip of water to return again with undiminished enthusiasm for fresh batches.... Their position at Dunkirk becomes hourly more dangerous as German batteries begin to receive a full [supply] of ammunition from their supply columns. ...
Parts of the town are in flames, and entire quarters in ruins. Outside, the main roads present scenes of confusion and destruction. Innumerable abandoned motorcars and [trucks] lie ditched in every field, while others set alight blaze fiercely. Bodies of refugees killed by German machinegun bullets are seen at frequent intervals, and everywhere long lines of soldiers hurry down to the sea and safety. Yet the work of evacuation continues uninterruptedly with calm efficiency, while a powerful rear-guard fights magnificently to delay the constantly increasing masses of German troops...."
