Last Lift from Crete

Crete, May 1941. Against all odds the Everards must survive a relentless Luftwaffe assault

The situation is dire for British forces in the Mediterranean. Admiral Sir Andrew Cunningham’s signal to his fleet is ‘Stick it out. Navy must not let Army down’. But the 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 is the story of a battle lost and won. It combines gripping personal drama with incredible naval action and shows Alexander Fullerton at the height of his career and his writing powers. A must-read for fans of Alistair MacLean and C. S. Forester.
