Last Lift from Crete Summary

Last Lift from Crete by Alexander Fullerton

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.

Praise for Alexander Fullerton

'Impeccable in detail and gripping in impact' Irish Independent

'His action passages are superb and he never puts a period foot wrong' Observer

'The research is unimpeachable and the scent of battle quite overwhelming' Sunday Times
