Is that Dunkirk? Or North Africa?

Panzer IV looks like it has a long barrel which I think would be too late for Dunkirk

Ah, OK. So my second guess was closer ;) I don't even know if there were battleships at Dunkirk, that's why I made that second guess in the first place.

Nothing as big as a battleship, but lots of cruisers and destroyers, like this;


Troops under fire on the beach. The crappy quality of the photo makes me think it's real.

That photo reminds me so much of a photo I posted in the old FF Forums years ago about Dunkirk as well, a couple of British soldiers and a huge explosion literally in the middle of them, one of them was crawling for cover I remember. To me, it was one of the best WW2 pictures I have ever seen. Maybe someone from back then saved it, I'd appreciate a lot of any of you guys can find it or upload it somewhere.
