The Battle of Crete: Hitler's Airborne Gamble

The author questions whether the German air assault on Crete was worth the losses incurred. German paratroop casualties were such that they were never again used in a strategic role, being consigned thereafter to a ground role. Major Biank looks carefully at the operation and comes to some valuable conclusions about the balance between strategic gain and losses incurred to specialist troops. Important in the study and evaluation of airborne operations.
