Operation Flipper was a British commando raid, during WWII, that included among its objectives an attack on the headquarters of Erwin Rommel.
It was timed to strike on the night of 17/18 November 1941, just before the start of Opperation Crusader, a major British offensive.
The mission was a total failure. Rommel had left the targeted house two weeks earlier, and all but two of the commandos who managed to get ashore were killed or captured.
