DIEPPE THROUGH THE LENS
|Hugh G. Henry Jr & Jean Paul Pallud|
"An interesting new departure for the ATB operation. More please." -BRITISH ARMY REVIEW
The first book in our new 'Through the Lens' series covers the amphibious landing at Dieppe by the Calgary Army Tank Regiment. The 14th Canadian Army Tank Regiment was one of the first Canadian armored regiments to be formed and was also the first to be committed to battle.
The action of every one of the regiment's tanks that landed is described in detail by Hugh G. Henry Jr who has spent several years on his research and interviewed all the regiment's survivors. Every Churchill tank and armored car left behind on the beach is pictured - one large photo per page - selected from the very best photographic coverage of the time. In addition, annotated aerial photographs by Jean Paul Pallud pinpoint and identify the position of every vehicle and full crew lists are given for each. The result is a uniquely illustrated 'after-action' report of Canada's worst military defeat.
