German soldiers help a wounded Canadian POW following the failed Allied Dieppe Raid, 19 Aug 1942. Instead of a demonstration of resolve, the bloody fiasco showed the world that the Allies could not hope to invade France for a long time. A total of 3,623 of the 6,086 men (almost 60%) who made it ashore were either killed, wounded, or captured.
