Australians in World War II: Greece and Crete

Department of Veterans' Affairs

Greece and Crete is the first title in the DVA series, Australians in World War II.

When German forces invaded Greece in April 1941 they faced poorly equipped Greek, British, Australian and New Zealand troops who conducted a fighting withdrawal. Many were evacuated to Crete, where Commonwealth forces faced a German airborne invasion. More than 600 Australians lost their lives in the Battle for Greece and Crete while some 5,000 became prisoners of war.

Greece and Crete offers a concise and authoritative account of the fighting and is packed with archival photographs, many from the Memorial’s collection.

Soft cover, photographs, 220 pages.
