Crete is located in the middle of the eastern Mediterranean, on the crossroads of air and sea transport from east to west and from north to south and vice versa. For this reason, it is an excellent base for aeronautical operations in each direction and assures to whoever controls the island the control of all transports in the Mediterranean sea. These characteristics give the island great strategic importance. As a result and from the beginning of Second World War Crete was in the main interest for both the British and Hitler. At the end of April 1941, the Administration of the British and Greek forces of Crete took over the Commander of the 2nd New Zealand Division Major Freiberga. The total military force of Crete, after reinforcement and forces transferred from mainland of Greece, was about 11,500 Greek and 31,500 British. Though, Crete was on a disadvantage in supplies, equipment and ammunition as the British did not implement their promise on providing individual and heavy weapons. Moreover, aviation was not on the island, while the available artillery and tanks were considered totally inadequate. All the German forces that would take part in the attack on Crete were 22,750 men, 1,370 aircraft and 70 ships. The operation would be supported also from a small number of Italian torpedo and anti torpedo boats, while a stronger Italian battalion, at the request of Mussolini, would disembark from Dodecanese in the eastern coast of the island. This action ultimately was held in late May, when the fate of the island had already been decided. The German attack from the air in Crete began on the morning of May 20, 1941. After a fierce bombardment, numerous flocks of transport aircrafts began to make parachute drops at the airport of Maleme, Chania, Crete. At the same time began the landing of gliders carrying airborne divisions. A fierce battle was followed in which all Cretan people regardless age and sex were fighting. During the course of the undertaking, the Germans managed to establish a small bridgehead east of the river of Tavronitis village and start firing against the airport of Maleme and the “hill 107” which controlled the broader area of airport of Maleme.

In Crete, Caretta Caretta spawns in Rethymno, Messara and Chania gulf. The sea turtle Caretta spawns every 2 with 4 years, during the breeding period the sea turtle leaves the water and goes to sandy beaches to find a spot to make its nests. When it finds it, it starts making a hole (the egg chamber) where it will place its eggs. Usually the turtles make up to 4 nests and spawn up to 120 eggs. The eggs hatch after 7 to 10 weeks, immediately the new born turtles start their climbing to the surface which can last up to 4 days. When they reach the surface they wait until night which the sand is cooler and then they run towards the sea guided from the star lights. caretta turtle Chania GreeceFor the protection of the sea turtle there is in the area the association Archelon.
