Tell Them We Were Here consists of accounts of the horrors of the retreat in April 1941 of the British Expeditionary Force through mainland Greece to the Peloponnese. In the absence of RAF cover they suffered continuous bombardment by the unopposed Luftwaffe and severe casualties.

Thanks to the Royal Navy, which is universally praised in these accounts, many escaped, but 10,000 soldiers were left behind and captured, forced then to endure four harsh years in German POW camps. Throughout there is gratitude to the civilian population who did what they could to succour the retreating army, nurse the wounded and wept as those captured were hustled off to prison.

This is their story of the ill-fated Greek Campaign through the reminiscences of the men of the three services who took part, many of whom are now members of the Brotherhood of Veterans of the Greek Campaign. Here are the raw emotions – courage, fear, patience – of those involved.
