Army, Navy

In May 1941, members of the Australian 6th Division fought a ferocious battle against elite German paratroopers on the island of Crete. Having been evacuated from Greece only weeks earlier the Australians and New Zealanders were poorly armed and had no air support but their resistance, although ultimately unsuccessful, would decimate the German airborne forces. Join Dr Adrian Threlfall, military historian and lecturer, in exploring this fascinating tale.
