Dunkirk and the battle of Britain

- How useful is sources A, B and C in understanding what the battle for Dunkirk was like? Explain your answer.
Source A is useful in the effect of giving us a first hand account of the events that occurred. The only problem with this source is that we don’t know if it applied to many people, or if it just applied to Commander Thomas Kerr. We also need to know the date that this source was written to find out how accurate it really is. Source B also gives us a first hand account of what happened on the beach. But also, only gives us one mans views of what he was experiencing and we don’t know how popular this sort of thing was, we would need more evidence to find out how useful this source is. Source C unfolds one mans views of a brave soldier attacking many planes. But this source may have only applied to this certain individual. After long hard thort, I have come to the conclusion that source B and C supports each other in the sense that the British army are fighting back. But sources B and C don’t support source A.
