Patrick Leigh Fermor and SOE in Crete

Patrick Leigh Fermor,

A lecture in English by Costas Mamalakis, Crete’s leading expert on the Second World War and the resistance in Crete.

Consultant in Modern History to the Historical Museum of Crete, Costas has been the moving force behind the publication of several memoirs of the resistance, including the most recent: ‘Tom J. Dunbabin: An Archaeologist at War’. Costas will be spending the week prior to this presentation reviewing documents in the PLF Archive in Edinburgh, and will be able to bring new insights to the many documents in Greek that have yet to be properly evaluated. He will be supported by Chris and Peter White and Gabriella Bullock.

Free entry for members of the PLF Society, non members £10.

Organised by the Patrick Leigh Fermor Society.
