Parachutes Over Crete
In late May 1941, the German Air Force launched history’s first large-scale airborne invasion, dropping a division of paratroopers onto the island of Crete, followed by a mountain division landed from transport planes. For thirteen days the motley Allied garrison of Australian, New Zealand and Greek troops put up fierce resistance before the Germans finally secured the island at a cost of one-fifth of their force killed, wounded or missing.
