Last Lift from Crete
Publication Date: 14 Aug 2017
Crete, May 1941. Against all odds the Everards must survive a relentless Luftwaffe assault.
The situation is dire for British forces in the Mediterranean. Their ships, with no air cover, have to run the gauntlet of 2,000 German bombers; and can only lick their wounds under cover of darkness.
Nick Everard commands the destroyer Tuareg as it ventures well inside Stuka territory. There they are ordered to evacuate a body of troops, plus an Australian field hospital and thirty nurses, from right under the Germans’ noses.
The soon-decimated flotilla has to make it round the Aegean, then out of Crete – but only a miracle can save them!
Last Lift from Crete combines gripping personal drama with incredible naval action, and is a must-read for fans of Alistair MacLean and C. S. Forester.
