Crete is rich in 5000 years of history. I have felt for some time that with more Brits moving to Crete a section should cover the historic past. There are many traditional and modern British links with the island typically exemplified in such books as "The Cretan Runner". You may not know that Crete once flew the Union Jack!
From time to time I receive messages asking to provide information on Allied Forces activities in World War 2.
Hopefully such questions can now asked in this board and for it to discuss Crete’s past and hope it can help those interested, particularly World War Two.
