Dieppe 1942

Thank you very much Sinclair - you have given us a very important part
of WWII. Besides the 'big picture' there are smaller pictures - in many
cases helped put together the larger picture.  The raid on the radar
station at Dieppe, gave the men back in England where the intercept
radar was and introduced 'jamming'.  For King and Country - brave
warriors and heros - going into the teeth of  German gun enplacement for
vital information.
It has also been said that at the time the Russians wanted the western
allies to start a new front.  The raid on Dieppe illustrated to them
that it was not only going to be difficult, but that much more had to be
done to prepare for a new front.
