WW2 -The Battle of Crete

On May 20th, 1941, Hitler launched history’s first ever airborne invasion, when German paratroopers landed on the island of Crete.
During the next ten days, the 22,000 ‘Fallschirmjager’ systematically and at a great loss of life, drove over twice that number in allied troops from the island.
This film chronicles in a fascinating day-by-day account, that momentous campaign.
