Subtitle: The Canadians at Dieppe: August 19, 1942

The raid on Dieppe was one of the most controversial operations of World War II and a costly failure. Many would argue it was flawed and doomed from the start.
The focus here is the personal stories of those who landed on the beaches, enduring nine hours of hell. The men of the Second Division did what they could, for as long as they could, to no avail.
The author hopes that the reader will remember the sacrifice made both in 1942 and recently in Afghanistan.
