Abducting a General: The Kreipe Operation in Crete by Patrick Leigh Fermor

One of the most daring feats in Patrick Leigh Fermor??s daring life was the kidnapping of General Kreipe, the German commander in Crete, on April 26, 1944.

Abducting a General, now published for the first time in the United States, is Leigh Fermor??s own account of the kidnapping. Written in his inimitable prose, and introduced by the acclaimed Special Operations Executive historian Roderick Bailey, it is a glorious firsthand account of one of the great adventures of the Second World War. Also included in this book are Leigh Fermor??s intelligence reports sent from caves deep within Crete, which bring the immediacy of SOE operations vividly alive, as well as the peril under which the SOE and Resistance were operating, and a guide to the journey that Kreipe took, from the abandonment of his car to the embarkation site, so that the modern visitor to Crete can relive this extraordinary trip.
