SWASTIKA OVER THE AEGEAN SEPTEMBER-NOVEMBER 1943

Book Type: C,O

by Anthony Rogers, 208 pages.

SWASTIKA OVER THE AEGEAN is a photographic record of events that occurred in and around the Dodecanese in the autumn of 1943. Those events resulted in the last decisive German victory of the Second World War. British and Dominion forces and their new Italian allies were subjected to a resounding defeat: 234 Infantry Brigade ceased to exist, and key Aegean islands remained under German occupation until the final Allied victory.
The Eastern Aegean was the setting for a series of German air-sea landings, something not normally associated with the Wehrmacht. German infantry carried out beach assaults and, unusually, Fallschirmjäger were deployed in their intended role as paratroopers, more than two years after sustaining frightful losses in Crete. Both sides relied on air and naval forces, as well as conventional and unconventional ground forces. German paratroopers were drawn from the Luftwaffe and Division Brandenburg; the latter also fielded coastal raiders and assault troops.
The Allies had on call a battalion of The Parachute Regiment, several infantry battalions, and Raiding Forces, which included the Long Range Desert Group, Special Boat Squadron, Commandos and Ieros Lohos (Greek Sacred Squadron).

This limited edition book is published in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the battle for the Dodecanese and features more than 500 images including:

Rare wartime documents
Some 350 wartime photographs
Colour photographs of the islands today
Maps of Kos, Leros and the Dodecanese
