The raid on Dieppe, code named Operation Jubilee, was the first invasion/large scale raid, of World War II. Jubilee featured the first use of Rangers, Churchill tanks, tanks in an amphibious assault,... More > P-51s and Typhoons and more. Approximately 6,000 troops were roped into the attack: they included 5,000 Canadians, 1,000 British, 50 American Rangers and 24 French light infantry. Poor planning and Murphy’s Law led to an 85% casualty rate for the Canadians who landed! It was a rate far, far worse than the 10% suffered by the US Marines at Tarawa in late 1943 or the 15% that would be sustained by the Americans on Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944. But their sacrifice was not in vain and may have saved 10 times as many lives in Normandy on D-Day, June 6, 1944. This is an easy read. At the same time, it is thoroughly documented. Its tables and six page index makes it a great reference book. 174 pages, 5.5" x 8.5", 66 photos and maps.< Less

The war year of 1942 saw him aboard an ill-fated ship loaded with food, medical supplies and high explosives, bound for the beleaguered Isle of Malta, whose people were starving. Facing almost certain death, he lived to fight on, unlike his shipmates, most of whom perished. By September 1943 he was back in the action, ferrying troops from Alexandria for the invasion of Italy. On D-Day June 6, 1944, he served on a hospital ship, helping wounded American soldiers from Omaha Beach. The author hopes his recounting will make you laugh or shed a tear, as he did while writing his story. He often looks back at the strange twists and turns that occurred throughout his life, to say, "Luck has been my constant companion."< Less
