Craig Moore analyses the German assessment report on British tanks used in the 1942 Dieppe Raid
On December 14, 1942, the British War Office, Ministry of Intelligence Department 10 (MI10) translated a captured German assessment report on British tanks abandoned during the 1942 Dieppe Raid. Classified as ‘Most Secret’, it was not to be passed outside the Research Secretariat as MI10 did not want the Germans to know that they had the document, and it would be very embarrassing for the British government if the information contained in the report was leaked to the press.
