Abstract:

Account of a World War 2 cross-channel raid made by an almost all-Canadian force.

Dieppe had no strategic importance, but Britain was under intense pressure to launch a major cross-Channel attack against France. In August 1942, an almost all-Canadian force of 5,000 men made the raid. Of these, 3,000 were kill or taken prisoner; 1,000 more never landed. Robertson provides a startling account of how this massacre came about.
