Unternehmen Zerberus

When? 11 February 1942

A Kriegsmarine squadron consisting of both Scharnhorst-class battleships and the heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen along with escorts, ran a British blockade through the Channel,

The RAF and the Navy reacted with delay because the plans were locked in a safe and the officer having the safe key was on weekend holiday.

In English, the Operation is called Channel Dash.
