The Dieppe Raid

Sunday August 19th marks the 70th anniversary of the infamous Dieppe raid where so many young Canadians lost their lives on what was considered a pointless exercise. This Sunday on the History Channel there will be a program aired called 'Dieppe Uncovered' made by Canadian Historian David O'Keefe and it shows the real reason for the raid now that previously classified information has been made available. Very interesting and could have turned the U Boat war and indeed the whole of WW2 around.
