Dieppe Raid | engleski leksikon

1. Dieppe Raid


In World War II, disastrous Allied attack Aug 1942 on the German-held seaport on the English Channel about 305 km/190 mi northwest of Paris. The limited-objective raid was partly designed to obtain practical experience of amphibious landing techniques and German defenses, but mostly to placate Stalin who was agitating for a Second Front in Europe. The raid was a dismal failure which cost the Allies heavily in casualties and strained relations between Canada and Britain for some time, although a number of valuable lessons about landing on hostile beaches were learned and applied in the D-Day landings 1944.
