In 1941 the German army invaded the strategically important Mediterranean island of Crete. The years of Nazi occupation that followed saw mass executions, widespread starvation and the brutal destruction of homes - but amid the horror, the Cretan resistance, the Andartes, with the support of a handful of British SOE agents, fought on heroically. On a moonlit night in April 1944, a small band of fearless partisans, led by the British SOE agent Patrick Leigh Fermor, kidnapped a high-ranking Nazi general. This is the dramatic story of a top-secret and high-risk mission.
