Dieppe Canada's Darkest Day of World War II - Hugh Brewster

Dieppe
Canada's Darkest Day of World War II

Hugh Brewster

Scholastic

ISBN 9780545994200

This story is one from Canadian history that we all need to know about. Brewster writes in a very engaging way, combining historical facts, exhibits, photos and firsthand accounts and quotes. He also does a great job of telling much of the story we don't know. He follows the survivors of the battle of Dieppe through to the end of the war and the return home. This is a great book for any family's library, especially as a reminder close to Remembrance Day.
