023 NEW ZEALAND INFANTRYMAN vs GERMAN MOTORCYCLE SOLDIER: Greece and Crete 1941
In April 1941, New Zealand troops were hastily committed to counter the German invasion of Greece where they would face off against the German Kradschutzen - motorcycle troops.
Examining three major encounters in detail with the help of maps and contemporary photographs, this shows how the New Zealanders used ingenuity to counter the mobile and well-trained motorcycle forces opposing them in the mountains and plains of Greece and Crete.
Featuring specially commissioned artwork and drawing upon first-hand accounts, this account assesses the origins, doctrine and combat performance of both sides.
