In the campaign in Greece and the battle for Crete the tale is of military failure, mainly due to the German command of the air over both land and sea. But the skill and endurance of British forces staved off utter disaster in Greece and made the Germans pay a heavy and unwelcome price for their conquest of Crete/5. The campaigns on the Greek mainland and on Crete might have been ill-conceived, ill-planned and ill-commanded, but all those who fought and suffered in the ultimately victorious struggle against fascism are worthy of being remembered, whether their efforts resulted in success or failure in the short-term. This compelling book combines details of the campaigns with an account of the response of Greeks and Cretans to the Allied forces on their soil. It reveals the personal relations that developed between Australian soldiers and Greek civilians and soldiers; these were sometimes hostile but in other cases developed into friendships that lasted decades after the war had finished.
