The Dieppe raid was launched on the northern coast of France in August of 1942. Over 6000 infantrymen, predominantly Canadians, took part. Half of them returned to England without having accomplished their objectives; the rest were killed or captured. Bob Bowman, an overseas correspondent with the CBC, detailed the event in this pamphlet for the Canadian public.
