NotesNews: Heavy Allied casualties in Dieppe raid. Aug. 19: The biggest Allied assault on Hitler's Fortress Europe was completed this afternoon after several thousand British, Canadian, American and Free French troops had been ashore at Dieppe for nine hours. An ammunition dump, a six-gun battery, anti-aircraft battery and a radio-location station were destroyed, but the communique issued tonight by Admiral Lord Louis Mountbatten's Combined Operations HQ admits that casualties are likely to have been heavy because of the "very fierce" fighting which rapidly developed. Furious air battles took place as the enemy attempted to break up the Allied aerial umbrella over the land and sea forces. German air losses are put at 82 planes certainly destroyed, and another 100 probably. The Allies lost 95 planes. The Germans are claiming that the operation was an attempted full-scale invasion, which was repulsed with heavy Allied losses. According to a communique from the Fuehrer's HQ, over 300 invasion barges and 28 tanks were destroyed, and three destroyers, two motor torpedo boats and two transports were sunk. Over 1,500 prisoners, including 60 Canadian officers, were taken. Statements issued by Mountbatten's HQ insist that the operation was not an invasion, but planned reconnaissance in force intended to gain vital experience in mounting an amphibious attack against coastal positions, using large numbers of troops with heavy equipemnt.
