The beach of Dieppe. It is impossible to imagine that on this wonderful and peaceful beach, 60 years ago, on August 19th 1942 hundreds of young men, Canadians mainly, lost their lives at the unsuccessful Raid on Dieppe.

Dieppe is an enjoyably small-scale port in the Seine-Maritime département of Haute-Normandie, France. The medieval castle is home to the Château Museum and two showpiece collections. This 14th century building was firstly build for the defence against the England

The Italian explorer Giovanni da Verrazzano, sailed from Dieppe in 1524 to explore the East coast of North America and founded the settlement that went on to become New York.
