Rally on Dieppe (action code name is Operation Jubilee ) was carried out on August 19, 1942. On the Allied side, about 6,000 people participated in it, mainly from the Canadian 2nd Infantry Division and British commando units. On the German side, about 1,500 soldiers took part in the operation, mainly from the 302nd Infantry Division. It is worth adding that the above estimates for both sides do not include sailors and airmen involved in the fighting. Often, it is assumed that the Dieppe raid was for political rather than military reasons. On the one hand, it was to show the will of Great Britain to fight, and on the other hand, it was to show the American side the total unreality of a large-scale landing plan in Europe in 1942. From the military side, it was to test some landing techniques in practice and to identify the fortifications of the Atlantic Wall. The plan of the operation assumed the capture of the city and the port of Dieppe, the destruction of the port facilities there, the capture of the prisoners and the withdrawal of the Allied troops to the British Isles. While the operations on the left flank of the invasion forces were fairly efficient and with low losses, the situation on the right flank was catastrophic, before the Allied troops disembarked! The element of surprise completely failed, only about 30-35% of the landing ships reached the beaches, and the German troops inflicted very high losses on the landing parties. As a result, as early as 11.00 am, the commander of the operation, General Roberts, gave the order to retreat. The entire operation ended in a disgraceful defeat of the Allied forces, which lost about 3,500-4,000 people and about 100 RAF planes out of about 6,000 soldiers taking part in the operation. It is worth adding that these losses were incurred within just a dozen or so hours of the operation being carried out! The German side lost about 600 killed and wounded.

Just before World War II, in 1938, the Kriegsmarine was established in the structure Marinestosstruppkompanie (in a silence of 4 platoons), i.e. a specific special unit of the German Navy, designed to carry out tasks in the aquatic environment. The unit was formed in Świnoujście, and its baptism of fire took place during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). In March 1939, it took part in the occupation of Klaipeda by the Germans, and in September of the same year it fought in Westerplatte. In 1940, the vessel was significantly expanded and, in fact, transformed into the Marine Stosstruppabteilung in the strength of six companies. This unit mainly carried out occupation tasks (from 1940) in Normandy, the coast of northern France and the Norman islands. It is worth adding that at the end of World War II, in 1945, regular divisions were formed from the Kriegsmarine personnel, which were to fight like traditional infantry formations. In this way, among others, the 1st and 2nd Marine Infanterie Division (German: Marine Infanterie Division) were formed.
