In two hours I'm off to the airport for my long-anticipated trip to Crete. Thanks to everyone who answered my questions over the last few months. Now if only the weather will hold up!

Battle of Crete questions

10 May 2005 - 05:37 PM

I'm a bit of a WW II history buff, and my upcoming trip to Crete in a little over two weeks seems like a great opportunity to visit some of the sites on the island where important events took place. Can you tell me where I should go to find the best information about the battle? I assume the cemetaries near Chania would be good. Are there also villages up in the mountains or on the south coast along the evacuation route taken by the British where I can find musuems or other sources of information? Also, if there are any particular books that would be a good primer for me I'd like to know what they are. Thank you.
