I don't think it's reasonable to criticise a film in an historical setting for not showing everyone who was there. Dunkirk is a story told from the perspective of a handful of people, it's not a documentary giving all the information. Saving Private Ryan was also criticised for featuring only American soldiers, but given it's a story about an American unit I didn't think that was reasonable, either.

There was one black French soldier in Dunkirk, incidentally. I'm not sure how historically accurate that was - I know the French used soldiers recruited in their African colonies, but I don't know if any African units were in northern France in May 1940, or if one black soldier would have been on his own as opposed to being in an African-only regiment.
