THE DIEPPE RAID (Color, 1979, 1 Hour 11 Minutes)
A Canadian Broadcasting Corporation production chronicling in detail the planning, execution and aftermath of Operation Jubilee, whose casualty rate among the 5,000 Canadian contingent committed to The Battle of Dieppe, which was the backbone of the infantry forces committed to the effort, was an astonishing 3,367 killed, wounded or taken prisoner.

BATTLELINE: DIEPPE (Black/White, 1963, 24 Minutes)
This episode from the epic 1963 documentary series featuring an account from a soldier from each side of a particular battle compares the experiences of Corp. Heinz Cassina, of German 302nd Infantry Division, and Sgt. Gilbert Usher Renwick, a Platoon Leader of the 2nd Canadian Infantry Division.

GERMAN LIVE COVERAGE REPORT OF DIEPPE RAID - ENGLISH LANGUAGE (Audio, August 19th 1942, 6 Minutes 37 Seconds)
A German mobile field recording unit with an English-speaking reporter gives a live and often desperate account of the invasion of Dieppe three hundred yards away from the main center of action, at one point fifty yards away from incoming tanks. A historical document of a high order for the fact that it was recorded at all, and further that it records live reportage of an amphibious invasion, from an Axis reporter, who spoke English, describing what is clearly a pitched battle, reporting, shouting and exclaiming in turns; "Hell seems to be loosed...", right up to and past the surrender of the British and Canadian troops in front of him. J. C. Kaelin took a full day digitally remastering this seven minute recording in 1998, a recording he obtained when he searched the shelves at the U.S. National Archives II that same year, fixing its dramatic variations in volume as fighters strafed overhead, bombs exploded, the microphone pulled away from the reporter's mouth when he was taking cover and so on, so that every event that was recorded could be heard clearly and distinctly. We have nothing else like it in the MediaOutlet.com collection.


August 19, 1942: World War II: The Dieppe Raid: Operation Jubilee occurs when the 2nd Canadian Infantry Division leads an amphibious assault by allied forces on Dieppe, France and fails; many Canadians are killed or captured. The operation was intended to develop and try new amphibious landing tactics for the coming full invasion in Normandy. The Dieppe Raid was an Allied assault on the German-occupied port of Dieppe, France on 19 August 1942, during the Second World War. The main assault lasted less than six hours until strong German defenses and mounting Allied losses forced its commanders to call a retreat. Over 6,000 infantrymen, predominantly Canadian, were supported by The Calgary Regiment of the 1st Canadian Tank Brigade and a strong force of Royal Navy and smaller Royal Air Force landing contingents. It involved 5,000 Canadians, 1,000 British troops, and 50 United States Army Rangers. Objectives included seizing and holding a major port for a short period, both to prove that it was possible and to gather intelligence. Upon retreat, the Allies also wanted to destroy coastal defences, port structures and all strategic buildings. The raid had the added objectives of boosting morale and demonstrating the firm commitment of the United Kingdom to open a western front in Europe. Virtually none of these objectives were met. Allied fire support was grossly inadequate and the raiding force was largely trapped on the beach by obstacles and German fire. Less than 10 hours after the first landings, the last Allied troops had all been either killed, evacuated, or left behind to be captured by the Germans. Instead of a demonstration of resolve, the bloody fiasco showed the world that the Allies could not hope to invade France for a long time. Some intelligence successes were achieved, including electronic intelligence. Of the 6,086 men who made it ashore, 3,623 (almost 60%) were either killed, wounded or captured. The Royal Air Force failed to lure the Luftwaffe into open battle, and lost 106 aircraft (at least 32 to anti-aircraft fire or accidents), compared to 48 lost by the Luftwaffe. The Royal Navy lost 33 landing craft and one destroyer. Nevertheless, the events at Dieppe positively influenced preparations for the North African (Operation Torch) and Normandy landings (Operation Overlord).
