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.
