Default German Paratroopers Executed Greek Villagers In Crete..WW2

It was June 1941. Crete had fallen two days ago to the Germans. But the Greeks had not gone down without a good fight. This irked the Germans. Moreover even in defeat the Greeks kept harassing and killing the German paratroopers in Crete. At Kondomari village dead bodies of some paratroopers were found. Also found in a village home was a jacket of a paratrooper with a bullet hole.

The Germans rounded up men aged between 18 and 50 from the village and shot them. The Germans were led by a lieutenant called Trebes. The whole operation was captured on film by Franz-Peter Weixler, then serving as a war propaganda correspondent (kriegsberichter) for the Wehrmacht.

It was reported that the villagers had captured German paratroopers and tortured them to death. Also, the villagers attacked them with knifes, axes etc.

The Geneva convention doesn't protect the villagers from reprisals.

Aaaah there goes the Fallschirmjägers' reputation as the one military branch that did not execute prisoners.

Imagine if you will the cities and towns that were bombed with tens of thousands dead and as many orphans, left to right and all over the maps.

History is full of such things.

Hitler considered the Crete and Cyprus paratroop campaigns to be failures, and he never used paratroops again. The nazis took both islands with a comparatively small force fairly quickly, but they had constant problem with the partisans gorilla tactics. Military historians think if he had moved in a contigent of regular troops, he could have kept these Islands much longer than he did.
