4.0 out of 5 stars The Real Reason For The Raid... Dec 10 2013
By S.H.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Churchill had a definite motive for the Dieppe raid, as this documentary clearly reveals. The producers did their research and create a compelling case to run parallel with the notion that amphibious landings against hardened defenses were being rehearsed.

The feature suffers from a bit of retread as it strives to fill its running time, but it is still worth the view.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dieppe Uncovered May 20 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A thought provoking insight into the dieppe raid. The historical content was excellent but the interviews with the historian were simplistic and taxing. Fortunately the rest of the documentary was first class and a must watch for any military enthusiasist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Done & New Information Sept. 5 2013
By Athena - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Well done with new information regarding the Dieppe raid. Nice interviews with veterans. The "drama" so often seen in documentary's such as this was not as prevalent as in other films of this genre. For some reason filmakers believe viewers need added suspense & drama which I find insulting & a waste of footage. The review after each " commercial break" is also a waste of time & footage. I for one abhor documentaries being turned into "reality" TV. This film fortunately did not stray down that path as much as orher films.

I rented the film, however I will purchase it after viewing it.

5.0 out of 5 stars New truths revealed Oct. 13 2013
By James M. Russell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I want to say, that as a lay historian, I had no idea, of the depth of secrecy that the Dieppe raid in August 1942 had. My late Father, was on the other side of the world, fighting Japan. This story, told in a lot of re-enactments, is very exciting to me. I did not know, that a future best selling author, was deeply involved. It was a real surprise to me. A very good and accurate account, as well as a very entertaining account. J.Russell, Savannah, Georgia

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally some truth Aug. 14 2013
By JP - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
It only took 70 years but the truth of the raid finally comes out. If you have studied this raid in detail or are just a Ww2 history buff then definitely watch this. It's very shocking on what the actual truth is.

The only this is its advertised as a movie but it's a documentary with some cut scenes.

Overall very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fascinating Update on an Obscure WW2 Event! Oct. 1 2013
By Captain D - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I seriously doubt if you could find more than one person in a hundred on the street that could describe the Dieppe raid and the reason that it occurred. Even being a big military history buff myself, I basically just knew it was a fairly large raid (about 5,000 men) that was somehow practice for D-Day down the road, and that it caused horrible casualties for the Canadians that participated. But finally after 70 years the top secret documents related to this operation have been released, and the info contained in those documents will amaze you! Every student of WW2 should see this!
