A clear insight to Dieppe giving those who fought and died there new found meaning. A wonderful film, and must-see for anyone looking for answers to WWII and why so many lost their lives at the beaches in France.

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.

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

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!

Was the Allied disaster at Dieppe on 19 August 1942 the worse loss of World War II, or was it a cover for one of the greatest special operations attempted-failures of all time? February 1, 1942 the Nazis changed their naval enigma coders to four rotor units making Allied U Boat intercepts impossible. This DVD provides new investigative reporting that reveals the role of the James Bond creator, Sir Ian Fleming, played in one of the greatest failed INTELL operations to obtain the new four rotor machines.

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.

With time and access to once classified information, the history of WWII continues to be revised. New theories and assumptions aren't always accurate. This docudrama has chosen to review only one facet of the Dieppe Raid. Was the only intent of this operation to secure ("pinch") a four rotor Enigma machine and the associated code books? Possibly.

One of the originally stated purposes of this raid was to acquire more information about the German radar stations and that was accomplished. The importance of radar jamming technology was a definite positive. The military intelligence information provided by recommence flights and other sources was inaccurate at best and proved to be disastrous for both Canadian and British troops. This is a well documented fact.

The narration would appear to be repetitive because the commercials have been deleted. The reenactments are punctuated with unnecessary 'light blasts' that seem to have no other purpose than to add to the length of production time. There is some original footage but not any that pertains to the Dieppe Raid. The interviews do add a personal dimension. Recommended viewing? The information presented is already available via multiple sources and this presentation only offers a 'dramatic' format. Worth viewing if you enjoy this type video or if you are just curious. Serious students of WWII military history may find it interesting or choose to find the faults. One can always find fun in a 'mystery drama!'

Very interesting movie but it makes you think about the government corruption even back then. Also, until I watched this, I had no idea that Ian Fleming did anything other than write all of the James Bond books/movies; let alone that he was one of the highest ranking intelligence officers in the British armed forces.
