In 1941, Hitler's army seized the strategically important island of Crete with the largest airborne force in history. Years of brutal occupation ensued, though the "andartes," Cretes resistance fighters, offered some hope to the tortured islanders, alongside a handful of British SOE agents.
Kidnap in Crete tells the astonishing story of SOE agent Patrick Leigh Fermor and his fearless team on their mission to capture the high-ranking Nazi, General Kreipe, and their perilous journey of escape that followed. This true story of courage and defiance in the battle against Hitler is explored by Rick Stroud with unprecedented access to first-hand accounts in Britain and Crete and told here in full for the first time
