The Raid at Dieppe, on August 19, 1942, was a disastrous Allied assault on the German-occupied French coast. The joint British and Canadian attack on Hitler's Fortress Europe was an utter failure, with nearly one-third of the 5,000 Canadian troops who took part in the attack killed or captured by the Germans.
