Operation Agreement Ww2

Operation Agreement included a series of ground and amphibian operations by British, Rhodes and New Zealand troops on Tobruk togerman and in Italian from 13 to 14 September 1942 during the Second World War. The third battalion of the “San Marco” Regiment (Italian Navy), known after this battle as the “Tobruk Battalion”, was the main defender of the port. A group of interrogators, fluent in German, also took part in missions behind enemy lines. The attacks extended to Benghazi (Operation Bigamy (Snowdrop), the Jalo Oasis (Operation Nicety (Tulip) and Barce (Operation Caravan (Hyacinthe). [1] [Note 1] The Tobruk attack ended in disaster; the British lost three warships, seven motorized torpedoes and dozens of small amphibians and several hundred soldiers and soldiers. Lieutenant Colotto commanded the 160-strong San Marco Regiment. It had only been a few weeks since the San Marco Regiment conducted its own operation “behind the lines”. The marines, transported from the port to the east of the coast to the east, were dropped behind British territory undetected. They went inland, cutting a railway line between El Alamein and Alexandria. The Italian airfield of Barce was to be attacked by two LRDG patrols. 64 men rushed into five jeeps, and 12 Chevy trucks first had to cross more than 1,100 miles of desert just to reach their destination. The attack was aimed at destroying or damaging as many Axis aircraft as possible and was designed as a simple attack, depending on surprise and speed.

It`s a classic operation. Operation Agreement was an abortive British attack on Tobruk, which was carried out on 13 and 14 September 1942. The operation included land, amphibious forces and various secondary operations. These failures would not prevent the British from attempting another strike of this kind. According to author Peter C. Smith, the British propensity to “soak up” the details of an operation rather than relying on a more structured and defined process of operational planning would persist. The absence of such methods again had a devastating effect on the British mission. What would further underline the numerical dominance of the air routes is that British forces would no longer have air support over Tobruk after the first RAF bombing during the operation. The inevitable supremacy of Italian and German aircraft in the sky would have terrible consequences for the attackers. After the marines silenced the coastal guns, the Sikh and Zulu destroyers had to go to the port and support the mission with its massive firepower.

Later, recover the troops after the operation. In attempting to “mislead” the axis powers, the British destroyers had Italian marks painted on their structure and were ordered to smoke and “lick” oil on their sides as soon as they were in the harbour.
