Amazing that our guys nearly won the battle for Crete-given the handicaps that they were working with. It does say something about the heroic performances of the New Zealand, Australian, British and Cretan troops that they were able to fight the mighty Wehrmacht to near defeat.
Unfortunately modern technology prevailed in this close fought battle.
So true jeff the same can be said for the Germans in Normandy they didn,t nearly defeat us there but when you look at what we had compared to what they had to throw they put up one hellova fight.
Rommel found out the same thing in the desert war.
