The Dieppe Raid was a disaster, the allies were very unprepared. The allies were spotted on the English channel by the Germans. As a result, the allies' landing had to be postponed for the daylight. The image shown above is the allies' tank. The tanks were suppose to support the troops, but it sunk on the beach. Many Canadians lost their lives fighting and many also became prisoners of war because of this raid, "While many men were lost and the raid did not meet most of the objectives, many historians feel that the lessons learned played an important role in the success of later actions" ( veterans.gc.ca). This attack pretty much was test on the German's defences. This improved the Allies landing techniques and the major positive result of this raid was, the Allies gave the French some hope and this raid sent a deep message to the French about how they are not forgotten. This raid strongly shaped the English and French's relationship.
