314 pp, large 8vo (9 3/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photos. "One of the most memorable events of the Second World War took place on 19 August 1942, when the largest amphibious raiding force in modern history made its way across the English Channel towards the German-occupied French port of Dieppe. The result, a few hours later, was a disaster. That some 3,300 Canadian soldiers and officers should wait over two-and-a-half years for combat and then be killed, wounded, or captured in a single morning is one of the great tragedies of the (War)...For more than forty-five years a cloud of mystery has hung over the event, which has seemed to defy all rational explanation. Why was it executed when it was known to court failure? Who was responsible?..." Minor rubbing to boards. Dust jacket has light edge wear, minor rubbing. NF/VG
