Ill Met By Moonlight.

Moss, W. Stanley (Patrick Leigh Fermor)

London: George G. Harrap & Co., Ltd, 1950. First edition of this account of the Cretan resistance during World War II. Octavo, original cloth, with fifteen plates in half-tone and two maps. Signed by Patrick Leigh Fermor on the front free endpaper. Near fine in a very good price-clipped dust jacket. W. Stanley Moss recounted his and Patrick Leigh Fermor's activities during the Second World War as agents in Crete of the Special Operations Executive (SOE), notably their extraordinary kidnapping of Heinrich Kreipe, Commander of the 22nd Air Landing Infantry Division that was occupying Crete, and his removal to Cairo (and British war forces) in 1944.[4] The manuscript was written in early 1945 but was censored by the Head of SOE, Major-General Sir Colin Gubbins (CD), by instruction to Colin Mackenzie (BB100), Head of Force 136. It was made into the 1957 film starring Dirk Bogarde by the British writer-director-producer team of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger.

Ill Met By Moonlight

Moss,W.Stanley

London: George G Harrap & Co Ltd, 1950 On 26 April 1944, Generalmajor Karl Kreipe, commanding the German forces occupying Crete, left H Q at Heraklion for his perisonal quarters. He never arrived. Instead, he was driven past 24 of his own guard posts, acknowledging the sentries'salutes while a hidden British officer pressed a gun into his side. 20 days later Kreipe and his chief abductors - Major Patrick Leigh-Fermor and the author - reached British-held Cairo. One of the finest true adventure stories of the last war, this justly famous book describes the secret landings, the plan, the stalking and victim. Moss's sharp eye brings to life the national characteristics of thw German solider, the British officer, and the Cretan andarte - characteristics which often showed themselves all too strongly during the day of "monotony, and sweat, and thirst, and sickening fear' in the mountains, hiding from a huge Nazi manhunt. The tale (based on Moss's own diaries) is told with humour and tolerance and, the fear and discomfort forgotten, is today remembered as one of romantic valour. The exploit earned even the Germans' grudging admiration, and showed them that their most exalted commanders were not safe from death or capture. 249p. Hardcover. Reissue.. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket.
