THE HILL: The Brutal Fight for Hill 107 in the Battle of Crete
Explores each of the individuals whose actions determined the outcome of the battle for Hill 107, the key event that decided the campaign to capture the island of Crete in May 1941. All the events are narrated through the filter of these eyewitnesses. The Allied perspective is from the summit of Hill 107. In contrast, the German view is looking up from below as they cling to the slopes while simultaneous dazzled by the morning glare and decimated by defensive fire. The Hill details what was felt, heard, or seen throughout the battle for both attacker and defender, drawing upon original combat reports, diary entries, letters, and interviews. Contains eight pages of black and white photos and illustrations.
