Last Lift from Crete(1980)
(The fifth book in the Nicholas Everard series)
A novel by Alexander Fullerton
Crete, May 1941. Admiral Sir Andrew Cunningham's signal to his fleet was "Stick it out. Navy must not let Army down...". But the ships, with no air cover of their own, had to run the guantlet of 2,000 German bombers; and keep on running it with only darkness in which to lick their wounds. This is the setting for a new episode in the career of Nick Everard. When it opens he commands the destroyer TUAREG, and is faced with what looks at first like an insoluble problem - how to "lift" a completely cut-off body of troops, plus an Australian field hospital with a staff of thirty nurses, from under the German's noses on the "wrong" side of the island, where dawn can only find the ships still well inside the Stuka territory. LAST LIFT FROM CRETE is the story of a battle lost and won. Combining personal family drama and gripping naval action to compelling effect, it reveals Alexander Fullerton at the top of his considerable form.
