Background[ edit ] In the immediate aftermath of the evacuation of the British Expeditionary Forces from Dunkirk in Maythe British started on the development of a substantial raiding force under the umbrella of Combined Operations Headquarters.
This was accompanied by development of techniques and equipment for amphibious warfare. In latea scheme was put forward for the landing of 12 divisions around Le Havre based on a withdrawal of German troops to counter Soviet success in the east.
From this came a proposed test of the scheme in the form of Operation Rutter. Rutter was to test the feasibility of capturing a port in the face of opposition, the investigation of the problems of operating the invasion fleet, and testing equipment and techniques of the assault.
A major problem for the RAF was that the Luftwaffe fighters declined to engage in combat over the French coast and instead operated inland, forcing the Spitfires to fly deep into France to engage in combat and thereby using up their fuel, placing the British aircraft at a distinct disadvantage when they finally encountered the Luftwaffe.
Thanks to intelligence provided by Ultrathe British knew that if any Allied force attempted to seize a port in France, the Germans would assume it to be the beginning of an invasion and that the Luftwaffe was to mount an all-out effort against the Allied forces in the port, whenever it might be.
Armed with this knowledge, Fighter Command pressed very strongly in the spring and summer offor a raid to temporarily seize a French port in order to provoke the Luftwaffe into committing most of its fighters in France to a battle along the French coast that would favour the RAF.
The River Scie is on the western end of the town and the River Arques flows through the town and into a medium-sized harbour.
Inthe Germans had demolished some seafront buildings to aid in coastal defence and had set up two large artillery batteries at Berneval-le-Grand and Varengeville-sur-Mer. One important consideration for the planners was that Dieppe was within range of the Royal Air Force's fighter aircraft.
However, the Germans in a much less ambitious summer offensive launched in June, were deep into southern Soviet territory, pushing toward Stalingrad. Joseph Stalin himself repeatedly demanded that the Allies create a second front in France to force the Germans to move at least 40 divisions away from the Eastern Front to remove some of the pressure on the Red Army.
In discussion with Admiral Mountbatten it became clear that time did not permit a new large-scale operation to be mounted during the summer after Rutter had been cancelledbut that Dieppe could be remounted with the new code-name "Jubilee" within a month, provided extraordinary steps were taken to ensure secrecy.
For this reason no records were kept but, after the Canadian authorities and the Chiefs of Staff had given their approval, I personally went through the plans with the C. This plan was approved by the chiefs of staff in May It included British parachute units attacking German artillery batteries on the headlands on either side of the Canadians making a frontal assault from the sea.
The plan called for a frontal assault, without any heavy preliminary air bombardment. The absence of a sufficient bombardment was one of the main reasons for the operation's failure, and various reasons have been given to explain why one was specifically excluded.
British and Canadian officials supposedly withheld the use of air and naval bombardments in an attempt to limit casualties of French civilians in the port-city core.
Roberts, the military force commander, is also said to have argued that a bombardment would make the town streets impassable, and thus hinder the assault after it had broken out of the beaches. Churchill Mann, who was regarded as the most able staff officer in the Canadian Army, wrote that the entire concept of landing tanks onto the shoreline of France "is almost a fantastic conception", and that what would be gained via "surprise" and the "terrific moral effects on the Germans and the French" would be more than enough to ensure the success of Operation Rutter, as the raid was then code-named.
Location of the raid: In addition, three of the Churchills were equipped with flame-thrower equipment and all had adaptations enabling them to operate in the shallow water near the beach. Naval and air support[ edit ] The Royal Navy supplied ships and landing craft. This was because of the reluctance of First Sea Lord Sir Dudley Pound to risk capital ships in an area he believed vulnerable to attacks by German aircraft.America's Jubilee: How in a generation remembered fifty years of independence [Andrew Burstein] on timberdesignmag.com *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.
