How Rommel outfoxed the INSANE soldier sent to kill him

History Documentaries

Operation Flipper (also called the Rommel Raid) was a British commando raid during the Second World War, mainly by men from No. 11 (Scottish) Commando. The operation included an attack on the headquarters of Erwin Rommel, the commander of the Afrika Korps in North Africa. It was timed for the night of 17/18 November 1941, just before the start of Operation Crusader. The operation failed as Rommel had left the target house weeks earlier and all but two of the commandos who landed were killed or captured. The mission was led by Geoffrey Keyes who earned a Victoria Cross posthumously for his efforts.
