Royal Canadian Engineers Memorial: WWII Dieppe raid, Newhaven, England
K. Holmes
Operation JUBILEE, the WWII raid on Dieppe, France across the English Channel took place on Aug. 19, 1942. Originally conceived in April 1942 as Operation RUTTER, the Allies planned to conduct a major division-sized raid on a German-held port on the French Channel coast and to hold it for the duration of at least two tides. They would affect the greatest amount of destruction of enemy facilities and defences before withdrawing. This "reconnaissance in force" action was intended to test the defences of Hitler's continental fortress and the capability of the Western Allies to launch large-scale amphibious assaults against Hitler's "Fortress Europe."

Monument en l'honneur du Corps du Génie royal canadien Raid de Dieppe, Deuxième Guerre mondiale
K. Holmes
L'Opération JUBILEE, le raid de Dieppe en France, a eu lieu sur la Manche le 19 août 1942 dans le cadre de la Deuxième Guerre mondiale. À l'origine l'opération mise sur pied en avril 1942 s'appelait l'Opération RUTTER. Les alliés prévoyaient effectuer un important raid de la taille d'une division contre un port sous occupation allemande du côté français de la Manche et d'en prendre le contrôle pendant au moins deux marées. Ils auraient ainsi le temps de détruire une grande partie des installations ennemies avant de quitter les lieux. Cette opération de « reconnaissance en force » avait pour but de mettre à l'épreuve le système de défense de la forteresse continentale d'Hitler et la capacité des alliés de l'Ouest à lancer des assauts amphibies à grande échelle contre le « forteresse de l'Europe » d'Hitler.

DARPA is working on something way better than GPS
Engadget
When your location marker on Google Maps is pinging all over the place, it's usually due to temperamental GPS signal. DARPA thinks this isn't cutting it anymore, and is developing a "radically" new tech that will offer real-time position tracking — something that'll work despite blind spots or jamming efforts. DARPA expects this will offer a huge boon to the U.S. Military over, well, everyone else.
