The 11th day

 
On May 20, 1941, thousands of elite German paratroopers assaulted the island of Crete. It was the beginning of the Battle of Crete - the largest Nazi airborne operation of World War II. They had expected to control the island within a few days; after all, they only needed to occupy Paris for a week before France surrendered. What they hadn’t expected was that the men, women, and even children of Crete would fight them to their dying breath.

Together with hundreds of stranded soldiers from Britain, Australia, and New Zealand, and a handful of British special operations commandos who had parachuted in to help, the Cretan resistance dealt Nazi Germany one of its most crippling defeats of the entire war. They would even kidnap the German commandant of Crete, General Kreipe - the famous operation masterminded and led by British Special Operations Executive officer Patrick Leigh Fermor. It was the only successful kidnapping of a German general throughout the war.

With dramatic re-creations and over 20 veterans interviewed from Crete, Britain, Australia, and New Zealand, including Leigh Fermor himself, The 11th Day is a heart-pounding adventure story about courage, faith, and heroism...a story that is all the more remarkable because it is history.

"Until now, we knew that Greeks were fighting like heroes; from now on we shall say that the heroes fight like Greeks." Winston Churchill
