Dust off your transmedia synergy bingo cards: Wargaming’s just announced a cross-promotion with the Warner Bros.-backed, Christopher Nolan-produced historical war film Dunkirk. Here’s your fast history lesson:

“The evacuation, known as the ‘Miracle of Dunkirk,’ took place from May 26th until June 4th, 1940, when hundreds of thousands of Allied soldiers were trapped by advancing German forces on the beaches of Dunkirk, France. As the battle raged around them, many were transported to safety by the combined efforts of both military and civilian vessels. The history of this massive mobilization and the hopeful, personal stories of those involved will unfold in the film Dunkirk.”

Wargaming is promising a commemorative event in World of Tanks, World of Warships, and World of Warplanes. Dubbed Remember Dunkirk, it’ll include a “series of emblems, missions and more” rolling out through July. The movie itself hits theaters on July 21st. The promo trailer is tucked down below!

And the movie trailer for good measure:

It should never be forgotten that the Miracle was actually Hitler declaring “England is not our natural enemy” and essentially allowing them to evacuate with only token use of force. The generals of the Wehrmacht and Luftwaffe were incredulous. But at that point, one did not go against orders from the fuhrer.

Weird seeing how WoWS already had Dunkirk missions over the weekend.
