Winston Churchill - British Expeditionary Force in retreat to Dunkirk

Time: May, 1940

Place: Dunkirk, France

Details: At the end of May, with the British Expeditionary Force in retreat to Dunkirk and the Fall of France seemingly imminent, Halifax proposed that the government should explore the possibility of a negotiated peace settlement using the still-neutral Mussolini as an intermediary. There were several high-level meetings from 26 to 28 May, including two with the French premier Paul Reynaud.
