Have you ever met anyone who didn't class Operation Neptune as a devastating naval victory ?Re Weserubung. This was certainly an important campaign victory for Nazi Germany. However, the objective for the Navy, initially, was to AVOID battle with the British and hope to take British intelligence by surrpise, to escort and land troops in a narrow time window. It was successful in this objective. (By the same token, D-Day in 1944 was presumably a devastating naval victory)
It was one of the most glorious achievements in the history of the Royal Navy.
