Documenting one of World War II?s most controversial campaigns, this decisive guide provides an in-depth view of how, a full two years before D-Day, thousands of men—mostly Canadian troops eager for their first taste of battle—were deployed across the Channel in a poorly organized raid on the French port town of Dieppe. Revealing that air supremacy had not been secured, and that the topography of the town and its near-impenetrable surroundings were impossible to overcome, this startling account presents allegations of a dark conspiracy that resulted in the utter carnage of the attempted invasion—with entire regiments literally decimated before the troops had reached the shores. Striving to reveal the facts behind the myths, and debating whether the invasion was an attempt to prove to the Americans—at the expense of many Canadian lives—the impracticality of staging the Normandy landings for another two years, this intriguing volume is an invaluable resource for those captivated by the path of military history.
Über den Autor: Robin Neillands is the author of The Battle of Normandy, The Bomber War, Eighth Army, and The Old Contemptibles.
