“Dieppe: An interactive decision-making exercise” with Terry Copp & Mike Bechthold

Date: Wednesday, August 15 at 7 pm
: Laurier Military Centre, 232 King Street North, Waterloo
Cost: Free (no need to RSVP)

Please join us to participate in an interactive reassessment of the decisions made during the fateful Dieppe Raid of 19 August 1942. As the 70th anniversary of the raid approaches, historians remain divided about  many issues surrounding the raid.  Why was Dieppe selected for the raid?; Why were the Canadians selected?; What was the difference between Operations Rutter and Jubilee?; Why was the raid remounted after it was cancelled?

These questions and more will be addressed in a process that will invite the audience to participate and comment on the issues as we try to think our way through the many challenges facing the planners and commanders of the raid.

We will be live-tweeting during the exercise from our Twitter page. Follow us at @LCMSDS!
