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 b****y 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.

The Dieppe Battle could have had a better outcome if only the Allied forces could understand the meaning of preparation. We wouldn't have lost so many lives if the soldiers had a better training and a better leader to lead them through the battle. They rushed things and therefore had the worst outcome possible and that is losing the battle and losing innocent lives that could have been saved. ...read more.
