The Big Pick-Up

(1955)
A novel by

 
 
THE BIG PICK-UP is a gripping and uncompromising story of WW II.

Set entirely in France, Elleston Trevor's powerful novel revolves around a ragged platoon of war-weary and humiliated British soldiers retreating from the German onslaught. With their morale collapsing, with enemy tanks behind them and enemy dive-bombers overhead, they trek to Dunkirk and the expected safety of evacuation.

Dunkirk was a disaster, but the army's salvation by a flotilla of little boats was a miracle.
