Summary
In the bleakest years of WWII, when it appeared that nothing could slow the German army, Hitler set his sights on the Mediterranean island of Crete, the ideal staging ground for German domination of the Middle East. But German command had not counted on the strength of the Cretan resistance or the eccentric band of British intelligence officers who would stand in their way, conducting audacious sabotage operations in the very shadow of the Nazi occupation force. 'The Ariadne Objective' tells the remarkable story of the secret war on Crete from the perspective of these amateur soldiers - scholars, archaeologists, writers - who found themselves serving as spies in Crete because, as one of them put it, they had made 'the obsolete choice of Greek at school'
