After nearly 80 years, the veterans are few and fading. And the battle did not last long; little over a week. It was bloody by modern metrics, with 12,000 casualties over this time, but not in the context of the Second World War with its 70 million dead. Dr Greg Mills discusses Crete's efforts during the World War II and what lessons can be learnt.
