The Battle for Sfakia
The German airborne assault in northern Crete has been successful and the remaining Allied soldiers, weary and demoralized, are retreating southwards. Their route takes them down the narrow Imbros Gorge and across the inhospitable White Mountains towards the small town of Sfakia (also known as Chora Sfakion) on the southern coast. Here the soldiers hope there will be sea transport waiting to take them to Africa. Hot on their heels are the well-trained Gebirgsjaeger - specialists in mountain warfare.
