A firsthand and revealing critical account of the most controversial battle of World War II which saw 3,000 Canadian infantry killed, wounded or taken prisoner within a few short hours. Was Dieppe necessary? What was Churchill's real intent behind the operation? Did so much sacrifice have a payoff later in the war? Those who fought so courageously at Dieppe are a vital part of the history of Canada's military effort. They are owed long overdue answers to the reasons why. Author won a DSO as an infantry captain fighting on the main beach at Dieppe. This very well-used former library copy has the defects you would expect, but the vital substance remains.
