Jump to new posts Dunkirk movie by Glenn Roberts @ Today at 07:01 AM

My wife and I went to see the movie "Dunkirk" yesterday. It was an epic story, told as poorly as possible. If you believe the movie, about 30 small ships made their way across the English Channel, watching as every Royal Navy ship was sunk.
