This is a first rate story of a forgotten episode in ww2. Beevor excels at not only giving us the facts but making characters such as the one eyed guerilla leader and archaeologist, John Pendlebury come alive, as well as the Cretan leaders such as Banouvas and Paterakis. As well as deatiling the battle for Crete, this excellent history also deals withe awful occupation and the amazing feats of courage of the Cretans who gave help and shelter to guerillas and soldiers on the run. This is military history as it should be written, fascinating, informative and an excellent read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
