“Wars are not won on evacuations” - Winston Churchill
I think that Winston Churchill's quote was talking about Dunkirk and how the British had to evacuate people. I for one agree with Churchill's quote because in a War, one would only stop fighting if they had to surrender. War's aren't won by people evacuating or 'running away'. In Dunkirk, the British were surrounded and the navy was ordered to evacuate. At least when the British evacuated, they were able to rescue 340,000 troops. However, would rescuing that many troops and evacuating be considered a victory?
