Another way to look at this is that you often learn more from a failure than a success. D-Day causalities were expected to be much higher than they turned out. Some of the savings was the result of so many lost at Dieppe. We waited longer, built up more supplies, mostly neutralized the German air, did more training and so on. There probably were hundreds alive at the end of D-Day because of that raid.
