Book summary

No punches are pulled in this strong account of a major disaster that cost the lives of 2,000 British sailors. In the six-week period between April and June 1941, in the waters around Greece and Crete, the British navy suffered constant aerial bombardment, with little or no support from the RAF. Even though the Germans had no sea fleet, this running battle could hardly have been won by the British, caught with nowhere to hide.
