Dieppe: Die Like Brave Men

The YouTube video below, from History Television’s “Turning Points in History” series, is one of the best documentaries that I’ve come across about the Dieppe raid. If you are interested in learning about the raid first hand from Canadians who were there, this is a “must watch”.

Note: This was produced before many secret documents were released regarding the German Enigma machine at Dieppe and the British Bletchley Park code-breaking project.  David O’Keefe in his book “One Day In August” claims that the real intent of the almost suicidal mission was as cover for a secret commando mission to gather intelligence in Dieppe that they hoped would crack the Enigma machine.

Enjoy!
