When can be generally accepted as the Invasion of Poland at the beigning of WWII in Europe, and the where can be just as simplistic: "The Atlantic".

Germany's U-Boat fleet was already on wartime patrol and when the war began, they were prepared to pounce. When the war in Europe ended, U-Boats were at sea, maintaing their patrols. Allied Naval and air forces were still searching them out, and they were among the last combatants to call it quits.
