LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Hutchinson of London, London - first UK edition, 1963. Hardcover, 8½" x 5¼", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, barcode, pocket etc. Jacket has short tears at spine head. Lean to spine. GOOD book in GOOD dust jacket. Black cloth-bound boards with gold and purple to spine, 31 b&w photographs, 2 maps, epilogue, bibliography, and index. An unbiased recounting of the Allied defeat at Dieppe in 1942. Three thousand Canadian soldiers were killed or taken prisoner, and a thousand more never landed. England's most famous contemporary sailor and soldier (Mountbatten & Montgomery) were primarily responsible, but the scapegoat was Canadian military commander Major-General Ham Roberts (who was subjected to shameful treatment afterwards).
