November 1st — November 4th
After breaching the Volturno line in October of 1943, the Wehrmacht retreated to the Barbara line, the next defensive formation in Central Italy. The Allies stormed it during the beginning of November, both from the west (American forces) and the east (British forces). The Germans didn’t linger for too long: after a brief battle, they retreated to the well-defended Bernhardt line.
November 5th — November 8th
Hawker Hurricane’s first flight
On November 6th, 1935, the maiden flight of the British single-seat Hawker Hurricane took place. It was widely used during WWII: Hurricanes formed the bulk of the RAF during the Battle for Britain, and even though they weren’t as advanced as the Spitfire, they won the greatest number of victories during that period of the war.
November 9th — November 12th
On November 10th, 1943, the operation to retake Gomel from the Wehrmacht began. As Gomel itself was very well defended, the Red Army command decided to move its forces across the Dnieper and take Rechitsa in a surprise move. It allowed the Soviet forces to move on Gomel from three sides, encircle and eventually capture it, severing the connection between the Center and South German army groups.
November 12th — November 15th
Naval Battle of Guadalcanal
The decisive battle in the Guadalcanal campaign took place on November 12th-15th, 1942, near the Solomon Islands. Both sides took heavy losses, but in the end, the US managed to repel the Japanese attempts to push the Allies out of Guadalcanal. It was a major strategic victory for the USA, and then President Franklin Roosevelt called it the turning point in the history of the Pacific theater of the war.
November 16th — November 19th
November 18th, 1941, saw the start of Operation Crusader, a massive offensive by the Allies on the North African front on the border of Libya and Egypt. They managed to push back the Axis forces under the command of Erwin Rommel and stop them from advancing into Egypt and taking the strategically important Suez Canal.
November 19th — November 22nd
Operation Uranus was the codename of the Soviet strategic operation that began on November 19th, 1942. The Red Army connected three of its fronts to encircle the Axis forces in Stalingrad. The fighting lasted for the greater part of the winter and ended in early February with Field Marshal Paulus’ capitulation.
November 23rd — November 26th
Formation of the fighter regiment “Normandie-Niemen”
On November 25th, 1942 USSR and France signed an agreement about forming a French aircraft squadron on Soviet territory. It was named “Normandy”; its pilots learned to fly Yak-1 and Yak-7 planes in late 1942 — early 1943 and then participated in the battles against the Axis from the Spring of 1943. For its part in liberating the Niemen river region, this unit that by that time grew to become an entire regiment was named “Normandy-Niemen” in late 1944, with its best pilots receiving the highest Soviet accolades. The regiment is still serving in the French Air Force.
November 27th— November 30th
Operation Tariq al-Qods
During the Iran-Iraq war, on November 29, 1981, Iran began Operation Tariq al-Qods (“The road to Jerusalem”), aimed to reclaim the city of Bostan that was taken by Iraq in the early war. Due to bad weather conditions, the Iraqi forces didn’t anticipate the attack that happened both from the north and the south at once and were completely defeated. Within the same year, Iran managed to liberate around 40 percent of the territory that Iraq captured earlier.
