Operation Jubilee: the Dieppe Raid, 75 years on

eBook Price
£4.99
On 19 August 1942, a disastrous seaborne raid was launched by Allied forces on the German-occupied French port of Dieppe.

Battleground: Dieppe by Major Tim Saunders, available now in Kindle and ePub formats for only £4.99 each.

In 1942, with the outcome of the war very much in the balance, there was a pressing need for military success on mainland Europe. Churchill ordered Admiral Lord Mountbatten’s Combined Operations HQ to take the war to the Germans. The Canadians were selected for the Dieppe raid, which, while a morale raiser, was a disaster. Over 3,000 men were lost.

This authoritative account looks at the planning and execution, and analyses the reasons for failure.

As seen in the Telegraph and the Daily Express: 1000 Days on the River Kwai – The Secret Diary of a British Camp Commandant, by Colonel Cary Owtram OBE.

Memoirs by former prisoners of war of the Japanese invariably make for moving reading but Colonel Owtram’s account of his years of captivity has a special significance. After being captured in Singapore and transported to the infamous Burma railway he was appointed the British Camp Commandant at Chungkai, one of the largest POW camps.

Many ex-prisoners testified to the mental and physical courage that he showed protecting POWs from the worst excesses of their captors. Of course his account does not admit to this but what is clear is that in addition to the deprivation and hardship suffered by all POWs, the author bore heavy responsibility for those under his charge and the daily trauma of dealing with the unpredictable Japanese.

It is not only the prisoners who suffered but their families at home. The postscript written by the author’s daughters vividly demonstrates the agonies of doubt and worry that loved ones went through and the effect of the experience on all.
