The Greece & Crete Campaign of 1941

The Greece and Crete campaign was one of the seldom mentioned failures of the Second World War. What part did Australia play in this and what was the cost? This course looks at the strategy behind the campaign, the action that occurred, sometimes desperate and bloody, and the reasons for its failure. Who was to blame and what do the Greeks think of it all today? We will also look at the fate of the thousands who were captured. Some went underground, some escaped and some spent the rest of their lives in captivity in Germany.


PLANNED LEARNING OUTCOMES
By the end of this course, students should be able to:

  1. Understand the reasons for the British (including Australians and New Zealanders) becoming involved on the campaign.
  2. Be familiar with the nature of the fighting.
  3. Understand the reasons for the ultimate failure and be able to judge where responsibility lies for it.
  4. Be familiar with the experiences of men who fought, were captured, escaped or died in the campaign.
