QuoteFor a really good (and free) source on the battle for Crete, the official NZ History is online here. While it focus on the 2nd NZ Divisions battles it does cover the other troops in passing. The maps are extremly useful (and well done) as well.We re-fought the divisons battles in the Maleme-Galatas sector A a local Wargames convention 20 years ago on a 16' by 6' board over 2 days . Unfortunately I have lost all the documentaion and photo's
Quote from: Rhys on 09 May 2022, 08:13:36 AMlast night I recovered all the long lost files from the Wayback Archive s I'll put it on my blog in a couple of weeks.Top get back on topic I'm currently reading "German battle tactice on the Russian front 1941-1945". I've read quite a lot on Rusian operational art and thought I should have a look at the other side of the fence. Its also not based on German generals autobiographies but rather US interviews with POW generals right after WW2. Thus it's unfiltered.
