More Info:
  • The Battle of the Duisburg Convoy was fought on the night of 8–9 November 1941 between an Italian convoy sailing to Libya, and a British Naval squadron which intercepted it thanks to broken codes. The convoy was named 'Beta' by the Italian's, but is known as the 'Duisburg Convoy' after the largest ship in the convoy. The British 'Force K' sank all the merchant ships and a destroyer without loss. Using Malta as a base, the Allies were able to sink 60% of all Axis shipping in the Mediterranean.
