Crete: The Battle and the Resistance (History & Warfare)
Synopses & Reviews
The book also considers some of the characters involved in the campaign: Peter Fleming, with his private army known as "Yak Mission"; the archaeologist John Pendlebury, with his glass eye and sword-stick; and commando leader Bob Laycock and his intelligence officer, Evelyn Waugh, for whom the retreat over the mountains to Sphakia triggered deep disillusionment and self-loathing.
A riveting account of the fall of Greece, the Battle of Crete, and the CretanResistance, from the beginning of World War II to its end.
Includes bibliographical references (p. -369) and index.
