Read full description of the books:
A little known account of the resistance movement on Crete by one of the Cretans himself. Anecdotal in structure, it paints an absorbing picture of the men in and of the Resistance on Crete, with the added bonus of the manuscript being introduced, annoted, and nearly completely verified by Patrick Leigh Fermor, a well known British travel writer who served with and befriended the author while working with the British SOE on Crete. An extremely important book, as it is NOT from the vie3wpoint of the lorldly Allies, and one of the first and still few accounts of the European resistance from the inside.
An added bonus to this book is a look at cretan culture through the eyes of a native.
