Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope 2. It's been a while since we last showed off some progress. Hopefully you will consider the update worth the wait though as we would like to introduce another map. The battle of Sfakia, part of the Battle for Crete in May 1941, created by Mr_Cheese. Sgt. Wedge helped with lightmaps and optimization. Toddel, Duke of Holland and Malsa contributed many custom-made houses and other static objects.

For twelve days Allied troops, assisted by Cretan civilians, tried to repel the most ambitious air and seaborne assault ever attempted to date. But in the end, the risky offensive succeeded despite the efforts of the islandís Allied defenders. On day seven, the 26th May 1941, the British command in London decided the cause was hopeless, and ordered a withdrawal.

Until June 1st, 1941 16,000 troops were taken off Crete to Egypt. Ships evacuating Allied troops came under attack en-route by Luftwaffe dive bombers and suffered serious losses. Most of the remaining 5,000 defenders at Sfakia surrendered, although some took to the hills and caused the German occupation problems for years.
