Original black cloth decorated in red and silver on boards. Previous owner's brief note. No damage. In 1944, the Germans controlled the Greek Island of Crete. A small group of British commandos hatched a plan to kidnap the German general in charge. When he was transferred, they settled for his successor, General Kreipe, whom they transported to Cairo, where he was turned over to the British forces. One internet reference suggests that members of Kreipe's detachment were glad to see him go ! 214 pp.
