The raid on Dieppe in August 1942 is Canada's most traumatic military event. This book examines the questions raised by that event such as the role of heavy bombers in a tactical environment and the role of the Navy in supporting the Army. Comparisons are made with other amphibious landings and then a number of what if scenarios are considered.
