Operation Caesar was a secret mission carried out by Germany in World War II to supply Germany's faltering ally, Japan, with advanced technology to fuel their war machine. The operation was a complete failure.
The engagement that ended the mission is the only known instance in history of one submerged submarine sinking another submerged submarine.
Famous quotes containing the words caesar and/or operation:
“And you too, Brutus.
[Et tu, Brute.]”
—Julius Caesar [Gaius Julius Caesar] (10044 B.C.)
“An absolute can only be given in an intuition, while all the rest has to do with analysis. We call intuition here the sympathy by which one is transported into the interior of an object in order to coincide with what there is unique and consequently inexpressible in it. Analysis, on the contrary, is the operation which reduces the object to elements already known.”
—Henri Bergson (18591941)
