Kidnap in Crete: The True Story of the Abduction of a Nazi General

Kidnap in Crete: The True Story of the Abduction of a Nazi General

Rick Stroud


This is the tale of the way a small SOE unit led through Patrick Leigh Fermor abducted a German common at the Nazi-occupied island of Crete in 1944. For thirty-two days, they have been chased around the mountains as they headed for the coast and a rendezvous with a Royal army release ready to spirit the final to Cairo.

Rick Stroud, whose Phantom military of Alamein gained plaudits for its meticulous study and its lightness of contact within the telling, brings those comparable presents to undergo during this new venture. From the adrenalin rush of the abduction, to the assistance supplied by means of the Cretan partisans and other people, he explains the final context of Crete's function in international conflict II and divulges the devastating effects of this challenge for them all.

there were different debts, yet Kidnap in Crete is the 1st publication to attract on all of the resources, significantly these in Crete in addition to SOE records and the debts, letters, and personal papers of its operatives in London and Edinburgh.
