Fjord Fury

Fjord Fury


In 1940 Winston Churchill stated, ‘It is a terrible thing that this prize should be waiting and no one be able to think of a way of winning it’. He had made reference to the German Battleship Tirpitz, which he also named “The Beast''. He had tasked RAF Coastal Command, RAF Bomber Command along with the Fleet Air Arm with the destruction of this ship. These Royal military organizations spent four years at great cost to sink the KMS Tirpitz. It was one of the highest valued targets of that war. At its various moorings in Norway, the battleship was attacked 15 times by no less than 400 aircraft.

The Tirpitz was finally sunk by aircraft of RAF Bomber Command on November 12, 1944, using 12,000 lb “Tallboy” bombs. The Avro Lancasters of 9, 617, and 209 squadrons made a return to the fjord to attack the 52-ton battleship, sending it and 1000 of her crew to the bottom of Tromso fjord.
