I found this book most useful in filling in a gap of wartime history, that is often overlooked. I was aware that the raid was generally considered a 'disaster', but this book reveals that there was at least one beach head (Orange) that did achieve most of it's objectives.
There is a 'tour guide' section towards the end of the book for those who wish to visit the sites today, which will no doubt be of interest to many.
Although generally good, there are a couple of criticisms that do come to mind. Some accounts are a little too brief, and supportive reproductions of the military maps are often a hard to understand. This book would have benefited from modern redraws of the maps associated to each raid, so as to help the reader gain a better understanding of the event and it's context with the neighbouring beach heads. Using the original maps are interesting to see, but were of little use in the size shown in the book.
Overall, a good read and a worthy contribution. This book will be of interest to anyone interested in the 2nd Canadian Division, Commandos, Dieppe and the Second World War in general.
I did not enjoy it, the style was not to my liking and as a result I do not reccomend it.
