A poor piece of work,
This review is from: The Dieppe Raid: The Story of the Disastrous 1942 Mission (Paperback)
For a historian of Mr Neillands reputation and having read and enjoyed a number of his earlier books I was to be disappointed. I expected better when buying this book, but unfortunately it is packed full of errors, starting with misidentifing the clash between the Allied naval No5 Group and a German convoy as a clash with 'E-Boats'. An understandable error at the time, but unforgiveable to be repeated in a recently 'researched' book. The Dieppe raid clearly deserves a new book based on all available archive documents, but this is not that.

I accept the author made an error, but it seems a little harsh to mark down this book to just one star based solely on that mistake. Were there other things that annoyed you about the book?
