What's The Most Daring Rescue Mission Ever Attempted?

There have been some truly unbelievable rescue missions in military history. Some work out, others do not. Which one was the most audacious?


The craziest I can think of is when the Nazis snatched Mussolini from his Alpine prison using gliders back in 1943. I'm sure you can think of a more outlandish (successful or unsuccessful) rescue mission, or at least a less distasteful one.
