Join Captain and Associate Professor Arthur Gullachsen at KFPL for a presentation on the Dieppe Raid of August 19th, 1942

The Dieppe raid was an Allied attack on the port of Dieppe, France in the summer of 1942. Of the 6000 Canadians involved, over 900 lost their lives, 2400 were wounded and nearly 2000 were captured. Why did the operation turn out the way it did? What was the rationale behind the fight and who was accountable?

Dr. Gullachsen will lead an in-person presentation on the Dieppe operation, outlining the sequence of events and its significance to Canadian military history. Attendees are welcome to field questions following the presentation.

Arthur Gullachsen is a Second World War specialist at the Royal Military College of Canada and author of An Army of Never-Ending Strength: Reinforcing the Canadians in Northwest Europe 1944-45 and Bloody Verrières: The I. SS-Panzerkorps’ Defence of the Verrières-Bourguébus Ridges.
