Synopsis

Early in May 1940, after months of phoney war, the armies of the Third Reich burst out of the Ardennes into northern France. Brilliantly conceived and executed, Operation Sickelschnitt was one of the most astonishing military plans of all time. Cutting through weak French defences, Rommel's panzers raced for the Channel behind the main British and French armies. Pillar of Fire is a unique personal view of this epic story of the journey of the British Expeditionary Force from hope to despair, to triumph in the midst of defeat - a triumph that may have saved Britain from Nazi tyranny.
