"Anyone wanting to explore the history behind Christopher Nolan's recent film could do a lot worse than start here." -- Times Literary Supplement
"... he [Korda] offers two books for the price of one, interweaving a historical narrative of the events of 1939-1940, climaxing with Dunkirk, and a succession of vivid fragments of autobiography." -- Max Hastings - The New York Review of Books
"The incredible, almost miraculous story of what happened at Dunkirk in the year 1940-and why-is unfolded in Alone with great narrative skill and superb delineation of a highly interesting cast of characters, including, importantly, the author himself and his own remarkable family." -- David McCullough
"His [Korda's] attention to detail when relating specific events is superb and will make the military reader feel as if they are there among the action." -- Soldier
"[Alone] vividly brings to life events which saw Britain stand alone as the only nation with the resolve and courage to defy Hitler." -- Sunday Post Scotland
"Ultimately, this is a title which offers an absorbing and well-written tale of political intrigue and military campaign... set within, is the fascinating tale of a family, as well as armies, rescued from the brink of disaster." -- Britain at War Magazine
"This account of the events surrounding Dunkirk is a no-brainer for my top read of 2017." -- Soldier Selects 2017 - Soldier Magazine
"... a superb retelling of the extraordinary story of May 1940, which in my view can never be told enough... his [Korda's] work addresses all the latest research and analysis of other historians. He has a fine eye for telling detail, as well as for the big issues and all the personalities involved... An exciting work of history; I loved it." -- Andrew Roberts, Books of the Year 2017 - BBC History Magazine
