The invasion of Russia was "Operation Barbarossa". The failed attempt to invade England was "Operation Sea Lion". So what were the operation names of the invasion of Poland, France, Denmark, Crete, Grecce, etc.? Anybody knows?

Are there any experienced suicide bombers?

Yes. The Germans, at the outset of the war, called their strategic operations "cases" ("Fall" in German), and usually attributed colors to them. Other movements had other names given to them.

Operating from memory, so I may have some of the colors mixed up...

Poland: Case White. (Fall Weiss)
Denmark: WeserUebung (Operation on the Weser [River])
France: Case Yellow. (Fall Gelb)
Crete: Operation Mercury (Merkur)
Greece: Operation Marita

There are some operation names in there that would most likely incur the **** filter on these forums http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif
