    1All Those Who Wander Are Not Lost


    It is late in the spring of 1940. Turbulence and chaos of the Second World War overwhelm the Allied troops trapped on the beaches of the English Channel in Dunkirk, France. Demise seems inevitable as the Luftwaffe looms overhead and the German infantry closes in. There is no way out.

    However, for roughly a week's time, a fog fills the air preventing the German fighter planes' vision of the sea. The notoriously violent English Channel grows still offering conditions calm enough to sail on, even for a modest sailboat. The tranquility of the sea is pregnant with expectation.

    During this time of unprecedented conditions, an assembled fleet of nearly a thousand civilian boats depart from British soil. They rescue hundreds of thousands of Allied soldiers from their imminent death. Many of these men later return victoriously to the French coastline on D-Day. The impossible heroism of these insignificant vessels of deliverance earned a legacy that would remain for years to come; they are called the "mosquito fleet."
