The graveyard of empires

Story by Stephen J. Thorne

The graveyard of empires appears to have claimed another victim. But why couldn’t a high-powered coalition that included the United States, United Kingdom and Canada defeat a radically fundamentalist group of murderous zealots?

Many said from the beginning that the post-9/11 invaders of Afghanistan were doomed to follow the Persians, Greeks, Arabs, Turks, Mongols, Britons (three times) and Soviets—all of whom left the country with their proverbial tails between their legs.

At the liberation of Dieppe

Story by Sharon Adams

On Sept. 1, 1944, the 2nd Canadian Division returned to Dieppe, France, to a very different reception from that of just two years before.

Canadians made up the bulk of the attack force of about more than 6,000 in the disastrous Dieppe Raid in August 1942—907 of them were killed, about 2,460 wounded and nearly 2,000 captured.
