It's always nice to see a diorama created with imagination and style, work like this is a real breath of fresh air, well done.

Very original evocation of the terrible Jubilee operation.

"Dieppe" trough the lens from Henry/Pallud is a must read for anyone interested in this tragic failure and a sad lesson about the "total lack of understanding by senior allied commanders concerning (...) employment of tanks in a built-up area"

More than 1 255 allied soldiers were killed (37 civilians) and 1 875 soldiers were wounded or POW.

And its only now, over seventy years later that the real -rather than official- reason is known for the reason behind the raid: capturing a four-rotor Enigma machine. You would think that after the war such could have been shared with the public and mission survivors...

Many thanks Frank for this up-date... is there any recent detailed publication about this "real" target for further extra reading?

Merci
