Στιγμές και όψεις της ελληνικής (και όχι μόνο) δημόσιας πραγματικότητας από ένα ιστολόγιο που αγαπάει την έρευνα

The National Archives (TNA) «Special Operations Executive SOE + Greece» Kew’s collections + SOE in Greece basic bibliography

Posted by Βασιλική Μετατρούλου στο 2013/05/15

Quoting the PS:

«This one is up exclusively for my SOE studying friends from the UK (and also Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA and all Commonwealth countries). As they return my help, after I ‘d returned theirs, after they ‘d returned mine etc.».

A basic bibliography about the subject ‘SOE activities in Greece’, containing books that are common both in English and Greek literature

What’s in this list:
I’ve tried once to make a list of all the books about SOE activities in Greece written by British. Well, this was a difficult task for me, since my access to UK published books was limited.
On the other hand, making a similar list with the Greek books on this subject was very easy for me, since I am studying the Greek literature about the German Occupation, the Greek National Resistance and the following Civil War for over 25 years.

I cross-checked these two lists in order to find out which books were common.
And here’s the result.

All books written by British and then translated into Greek,
and all books written by Greeks and then translated into English.
Not all books are 100% SOE related, but all of the them contain critical material and lots of references on SOE, agents and BLO activities.

As you can see, there are more titles at the end of the list about Crete and/or the Battle of Crete (May 1941), and there is also Tim Todd’s collection, as a special feature.

I call this list ‘a basic bibliography’ because I know very well that there will never be ‘a *complete* list‘ on any subject; there are always titles (or papers or articles) missing.
But I think a good 90something per cent was achieved.

Not sure if that was actually a real SOE patch, or even if there was one at all, but there's not anything else.

– Η απίστευτη αληθινή ιστορία του Πάτρικ Λη Φέρμορ και της ομάδας του, που αγωνίστηκαν να σώσουν την Κρήτη από τους Ναζί
Στα ζοφερότερα χρόνια του Β’ Παγκοσμίου Πολέμου, όταν τίποτα δεν έμοιαζε ικανό να σταματήσει τα γερμανικά στρατεύματα, ο Χίτλερ στρέφει την προσοχή του στην Κρήτη, ιδανική βάση για τη γερμανική κυριαρχία στη Μέση Ανατολή. Όμως η γερμανική διοίκηση δεν είχε υπολογίσει μία εκκεντρική ομάδα Βρετανών μυστικών πρακτόρων που θα στεκόταν εμπόδιο στα σχέδιά της εκτελώντας τολμηρά σαμποτάζ στη σκιά των ναζιστικών δυνάμεων κατοχής.
Η Επιχείρηση «Αριάδνη» αφηγείται την εκπληκτική ιστορία αυτού του μυστικού πολέμου από την οπτική των ερασιτεχνών στρατιωτών -πανεπιστημιακών, αρχαιολόγων, συγγραφέων- που βρέθηκαν να δρουν ως κατάσκοποι στην Κρήτη επειδή, όπως το έθεσε ένας από αυτούς, είχαν προχωρήσει στην «επιλογή του μαθήματος των αρχαίων ελληνικών στο σχολείο»: του Πάτρικ Λη Φέρμορ, μιας βυρωνικής μορφής και μετέπειτα διάσημου ταξιδιωτικού συγγραφέα, ο οποίος ως έφηβος είχε διασχίσει με τα πόδια την Ευρώπη την περίοδο της ανόδου του Χίτλερ στην εξουσία· του Τζον Πέντλμπερυ, ενός τολμηρού αρχαιολόγου με γυάλινο μάτι και μπαστούνι με λάμα ξίφους· του Ζαν Φίλντινγκ, ενός συγγραφέα που αργότερα θα μετέφραζε στα αγγλικά τη Γέφυρα του ποταμού Κβάι και τον Πλανήτη των πιθήκων· και του Σάντυ Ρέντελ, ενός μετέπειτα ρεπόρτερ των Times που υπερηφανευόταν ότι η μεταμφίεσή του τον έκανε να δείχνει πιο σκληροτράχηλος από τους Κρητικούς ορεσίβιους δίπλα στους οποίους πολεμούσε.
Εισχωρώντας κρυφά στην κατεχόμενη Κρήτη, οι κατάσκοποι αυτοί ενώθηκαν με τους Κρητικούς αντιστασιακούς, για να θέσουν σε εφαρμογή ένα πανούργο εγχείρημα προκειμένου να αποτρέψουν τα σχέδια των Ναζί, με αποκορύφωμα την τολμηρή και εξαιρετικά επικίνδυνη αποστολή της απαγωγής του Γερμανού διοικητή του νησιού.

  1. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    But think of if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more, «pop»!

    Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this website could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its niche.
    Very good blog!

    Dear Readers;

    I have just published a novel about the Special Operations Executive’s involvement with Rudolf Hess’ flight to Scotland and the use of the paranormal to win WWII. Although fiction, the book mixes fact with fiction, including real life characters like Ian Fleming, Aleister Crowley, Heinrich Himmler, Reyhold Heydrich, and Rudolf Hess to tell a fascinating tale of thrilling intrigue.

    It is for sale at Amazon.com Kindle. In February, the paperback version will be available in February.
    Check out my website dedicated to the book: www. robertmbennett. org

    Thanks.

    R. Bennett
