Dieppe

Posted by Scott On June - 19 - 2017

The Aug/Sep 2017 issue of Canada’s History is scheduled to hit newsstands July 24th, 2017.

Here’s what Editor Mark Reid has to say about this one:

“For years, the WWII attack on Nazi-held Dieppe was viewed as a disaster. And when it comes to the sheer loss of life, and the scores of Canadian and Allied soldiers captured and made into POWs, the Dieppe Raid of August 19, 1942 was truly disastrous. But what if there was a secret, ulterior motive for conducting the doomed raid? What if the raid was really a cover for a covert spy mission — to steal secret information that could help break the infamous Nazi Enigma code machine?

For our August-September issue, Canada’s History is featuring a harrowing image of an Allied soldier — one of the few survivors who managed to escape the chaos and killing on the rocky beaches at Dieppe. The Dieppe Raid marks its 75th anniversary this year, and our cover story, by award-winning author and historian David O’Keefe, reveals the real reason behind the botched sneak attack on Nazi-occupied France.”
