Silk Clouds & Olive Trees – Stories from the Battle of Crete
Author – Deborah Wheeler

Summary: A lifetime has passed since the men involved in the Battle of Crete left Australia and New Zealand to join the British to go and fight for the freedom of others. This little reported battle had far reaching consequences for all involved. Reading this book we become aware of how a handful of these ANZACs felt, what they saw and experienced in Greece, Crete and in numerous POW camps where some of them were interred. The forging of unbreakable bonds, particulary with the Cretan people who fought alongside them, often at great sacrafice to themselves, their families and friends. How 80 years later those bonds of friendship have been handed down from family to family.

“I can verify the feelings of each soldier during these actions in Greece and on Crete because I was there experiencing the same feelings.” – Alfred Carpenter, World War Two Vetran, 2020
