Reviews

'Antony Beevor's unerring flair for the climate and the feel of the conflict ! his insight and his grasp of these vents make them seem as though they had happened last week' -- Patrick Leigh Fermor, Daily Telegraph 'Excellent... an arresting account of the whole war on Crete, including the ghastly experiences of the Cretans under German occupation' -- John Keegan, Sunday Telegraph 'The best book we have got on Crete' -- Michael Foot, Observer 'Beevor's account is excellent: fresh, lively and peppered with anecdotes' -- Mail on Sunday 'A new paperback edition is welcome for two reasons; reminding us that Beevor is a writer and historian of rare ability and for starkly illustrating the variables of war' -- Neville Smith, Lloyd's List 20051028
