"Look behind you Mr Caesar !"

Battles are not about dying to the last man, they weren't Spartans at Thermopylae for goshs sake. They held as long as they could, then evacuated, like Dunkirk. You are not suggesting Dunkirk was a surrender are you my good man?
I honestly always have had trouble seeing Dunkirk as anything but a rout, and Crete (the whole British Greek campaign actually) as a disaster.
