In 1941, thousands of German paratroops dropped on to the island of Crete. After suffering horrendous casualties, they took the island, leading to yet another amphibious operation to evacuate Allied soldiers. Still, thousands of Greek, British and Commonwealth soldiers were captured.
The 11th Day is the story of the civilians of Crete and how they resisted the Germans until they were liberated at the end of the war. This documentary is currently on tour. Check the website for tour information.
