Cassell Military Paperba, Autobiography: historical, political & military, Prose: non-fiction, Second World War, Warfare & defence

This is a classic account by one of the officers who took part in one of the great escapades of WWII. In 1943, W. Stanley Moss and Patrick Leigh-Fermor, both serving with Special Forces in the Middle East, decided on a plan to kidnap General Kreipe, Commander of the Sevastopol Division in Crete, and bring him back to Allied occupied Cairo. This is the story of their adventures, working with a fearsome band of partisans, as they daringly capture the General in an ambush and struggle to evade pursuing German troops in the mountainous Cretan landscape to reach their rendezvous for evacuation to safety.
