Gold From Crete

(1970)
A novel by

 
9 of these 10 stories were written during World War 2, as entertainment and to explain some of what was happening with British sailors, airmen, and tank crews battling for freedom and liberty. You have five stories about the courageous men of the HMS Apache barely surviving dropped bombs and blazing guns as they recover treasure or attack harbors; their Captain dons a diving suit to protect the Brooklyn Navy Yard and adds his knowledge of a German submarine Captain which destroys the German; and crew chase a submarine with the new sonar. In addition, you have a charming spy story, a romance between an American fighter pilot in the RAF and his WREN girlfriend who work together to capture a new Messerschmitt, a Holland's tug boat captain who uses his observed dumbness to make a significant contribution to the allied war effort, and you experience the dryness and uncomfort of a mad rush in a tank across the North African desert to victory. Then there is a long story fictionalizing the possible invasion of England by Hitler and the probable actions taken by the Germans to invade and the English to defend. Here is a window to understanding the people who fought, their feelings, and the feelings of those around them.
