The Battle of Dieppe.

Extracts from this document...


THE BATTLE OF DIEPPE (The essay) By: Thai Tran The Battle of Dieppe was a very shameful thing for the Nation of Canada because of the military failure. The allied troops were mostly inexperienced or had very little experience to be in this battle. Many Canadians lost their lives in this bloody battle. If the General of the Allied forces took the time to prepare more and learn the defences of enemy better than maybe the battle would be different.
