Churchill's Folly

The Battles for Kos and Leros, 1943

Anthony Rogers

With the intention of capitalizing on the Italian surrender in 1943, Churchill ordered the seizure of key islands in the Dodecanese, in spite of the fact that his plan was not supported by the Americans. This account of the campaign explains how a lack of air support contributed to the successful recapture of the islands from the defending British and Italian troops in one of the last significant German victories of the war.
