Shopping and Contemplation!

THIS DAY IN WW2 (18.2.40) The German battle cruisers Gneisenau, Scharnhorst and the pocket battleship Admiral Hipper make an unsuccessful sortie against the "HN" convoy route between Britain and Scandinavia as part of Operation Nordmark. German U-boats providing escort for the capital ships, however, sink 12 merchant ships and the British destroyer HMS Daring. A German infantry detachment, with heavy mortar support, makes an unsuccessful raid on a French outpost near the Moselle River. Japanese forces engaged in the city of Nanning are compelled withdraw after heavy fighting.
