German paratroopers landed on Crete in May 1941, hitting four drop zones defended by Australian, New Zealand and British troops, plus hastily-organized Greek regiments and often the armed Cretan populace. Our Parachutes Over Crete game covers the air landings at Maleme, Prison Valley and Rethymno; this new Campaign Study looks at the battle for Heraklion, the capital of Crete, defended by the British 14th Brigade.
Heraklion is a Campaign Study, a short book adding nine scenarios based on these battles to Parachutes Over Crete. This is a thing that really happened! To play these nine scenarios (which come with three battle games, too), you’ll also need Parachutes Over Crete and Road to Dunkirk.
