Operation Benecke

(14th century German pirate and privateer)

'Benecke' was a U-boat wolfpack operation in the Atlantic Ocean against OG series of convoys on the route between the UK and Gibraltar (19 November/2 December 1941).

The wolfpack comprised U-96, U-332, U-402 and U-552, and neither lost any of its own number nor sank any ship.
