The conflict examined through recorded figures and statistics.
The documentary examines the botched raid on the German-occupied harbour of Dieppe, France in August 1942, which resulted in the loss of around 4,000 Allied men and drove home just how costly an invasion of France would be. The programme also focuses on Hitler’s order in 1945 to destroy any military or industrial facilities that could be useful to the enemy – which would have condemned the German people to utter desolation. Last in the series.
