    Probably just a matter of 20-20 hindsight.?
    But.....did The Allies think they would be able to occupy Dieppe, and Do/Destroy whatever the plan was, and then still be able to get the men back to England... or was this maybe (even if successful) a "one way" mission.?
    I assume most Tanks/Heavy Equipment were never coming back.....
    Thank You

    I am a Canadian. I have been to Dieppe. I have visited the cemetery.
    I do not think there was a plan other than to harass the enemy and to depart. Reminder that this fiasco took place in 19th August, 1942; almost 2 years before 6th June, 1944.
