"We Shall Fight on the Beaches" June 4, 1940 - House of Commons > The position of the British Expeditionary Forces had now become critical As a result of a most skillfully conducted retreat and German errors, the bulk of the British Forces reached the Dunkirk bridgehead. The peril facing the British nation was now suddenly and universally perceived. On May 26, "Operation Dynamo "--the evacuation from Dunkirk began. The seas remained absolutely calm. The Royal Air Force--bitterly maligned at the time by the Army--fought vehemently to deny the enemy the total air supremacy which would have wrecked the operation. At the outset, it was hoped that 45,000 men might be evacuated; in the event, over 338,000 Allied troops reached England, including 26,000 French soldiers. On June 4, Churchill reported to the House of Commons, seeking to check the mood of national euphoria and relief at the unexpected deliverance, and to make a clear appeal to the United States.

Winston Churchill's Personality (according to IBM Watson...)

You are shrewd.

You are empathetic: you feel what others feel and are compassionate towards them.

You are confident: you are hard to embarrass and are self-confident most of the time.

And you are philosophical: you are open to and intrigued by new ideas and love to explore them.

More than most people, your choices are driven by a desire for prestige.

You are relatively unconcerned with tradition: you care more about making your own path than following what others have done.

You consider independence to guide a large part of what you do: you like to set your own goals to decide how to best achieve them.
