Crete, May 20th 1941: There were several plans proposed for the Invasion of Crete, ranging from one major Drop Zone, to others where troops would arrive scattered in 7 locations. The final plan for "Operation Merkur", or "Mercury", represented a compromise imposed by Reichsmarshall Goering calling for a morning assault in the Maleme\Canea sector, followed up with two afternoon drops in the vicinity of Rethymnon and Heraklion. [Size, large] Designer Note: This scenario features an historical, yet variable, Axis Airborne arrival. It starts with the drops around the Eastern Maleme-Canea Sector, then it features Axis Strategy Operations for the follow on Axis reinforcements. The German Player can pick from 1) The historical plan as defined in the _01 Scenario. 2) A reverse order where a small force drops at Heraklion, before the Rethymnon drops, followed by later drops at both Heraklion and Rethymnon. 3) All follow on drops in the Maleme Sector.

Well, we had been too shortly into the action to state anything meaningful or formative ...
Seemed alright, but commanding a light infantry division with little support turned out to be a pretty frustrating business, the ANZAC and even Greeks were putting a stubborne defence, cutting certain elements off and decimating them early on on landing.
