Historical Background:
August19,1942 in the mornig : landing of the allies on the beaches of Dieppe. this is the "operation Jubilee", including 6000 men. 4963 Canadians are responsable, inter alia, of attacks on front and on Pourville on the west. At Pourville, South Saaskatchewan Regiment and Cameron Highlanders of Canada meet only a slight resistance but it becomes stronger when thay crossed the river Scie to move towards Dieppe. They will never reach the airfield of Saint-Aubin which was one of their goals.The main attack must cross the pebble beach in front of Dieppe and take place half an hour after landings on the flanks. Hidden in the buildings overlooking the promenade and on the cliff,the Germans fight back harshly. Tanks, immobilized by the dam and pebbles, are greeted by a roaring fire. The operation will result in disaster : among the 4963 Canadians embarked for the operation, only 2210 returned in England including many wounded persons. 907 Canadians lost their live in Dieppe.
