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.

Battle Of Crete, May 20, 1941 - June 1, 1941
