DIGITAL.NEOSKOSMOS.COM THE WEEKEND NEOS KOSMOS | SATURDAY 31 JANUARY 2015 17 real warpaths Mamalakis' knowledge of the abduction of the German General Heinrich Kreipe (led by Fermor) is second to none and one tour will visit the secret mountain hideouts the abductors used. Every landscape contains energies and vibrations from another time. Crete's story in WWII is there to be discovered - not just in museums or in the ceremonies, but in the mountains, along the ancient paths, and beside the beaches that witnessed those epic events. Costas Mamalakis invites us to join him on these tracks of history, to walk in the footsteps of the Anzacs and their Cretan brothers and sisters in arms.
