The Battle of Crete to be taught in Australian schools
Σύνταξη/επιμέλεια από τον/την Νίκος Αγγελίδης   
The Black Dog publishing company was looking for an author to write the fourth in the Drum series of books on Australians at war for teen audiences. So having a Greek Australian of Cretan background with experience in a range of writing fall into their laps was perfect. Stella Tzobanakis spent two years researching the Battle of Crete and undertook extensive interviews with a Cretan who had lived through the Battle of Crete as well as an Australian soldier who had served with the Australian forces in Crete. The process of writing the book also triggered a very personal journey for Tzobanakis, a journey which started with her trip to Crete as a 15 year old and which continued through her writing of the book as an adult.
