Creforce: The ANZACs and the Battle of Crete
On 20 May 1941 Germany launched an airborne invasion of Crete. Australian, New Zealand and British troops, fighting alongside Greek soldiers and the people of Crete, formed a crucial bond as they defended the tiny island. The battle lasted for ten days, when at last the island fell, but the bonds between the ANZACs and Cretans have lasted for generations. Stella Tzobanakis tells the story of the battle, and the stories of soldiers and civilians who fought for the island.
