This text offers an account of a key operation of World War II. For much of the war, the powerful German battleship Tirpitz had dominated the Atlantic and was a deadly adversary of the Allied convoys. The Royal Navy had achieved notable successes in sinking the Graf Spee in 1939 and the Bismarck in 1941, but from its base in Norway, Tirpitz effectively blocked the convoy routes to North Russia and threatened the possibility of a destructive breakout into the Atlantic. British midget submarines and Soviet and Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm torpedo bombers all tried to destroy Tirpitz in port, but only succeeded in temporarily immobilizing her.
