David O'Keefe's
The UK to DIEPPE battlefield tour

- Bletchley Park - Portsmouth - Channel Crossing - Dieppe - 

with historian & professor David O’Keefe & Leger's Ben Mayne

Overview of Dieppe

Jul 02 - Jul 11

In the early waking hours of August 19th, 1942 - 5,000 Canadians, 1,000 British, and 50 US Army Rangers stormed Dieppe's coastline along six beaches. In less than 10 hours, a total of 3,367 out of the 6,086 were either killed, wounded, or captured. To walk the ground of Dieppe is to get the truest sense of this tragedy. 

On this tour, Historian and Professor David O’Keefe, will lead us on an expanded tour of Dieppe Uncovered - from the UK to Dieppe. This is a custom tour created for Canadians who wish to participate in an explorative tour alongside our experienced team.
