In April 1941, as Churchill strove to counter the German threat to the Balkans, New Zealand troops were hastily committed to combat in the wake of the German invasion of Greece where they would face off against the German Kradschutzen--motorcycle troops. Examines three major encounters in detail with the help of maps and contemporary photographs to show how the New Zealanders used all their courage and ingenuity to counter the mobile and well-trained motorcycle forces opposing them in the mountains and plains of Greece and Crete. Featuring specially commissioned artwork and drawing upon first-hand accounts, this account pits New Zealand's infantrymen against Germany's motorcycle troops at the height of World War II in the Mediterranean theater, assessing the origins, doctrine and combat performance of both sides.
