Ill Met By Moonlight is the gripping account of the audacious World War II abduction of a German general from the island of Crete. British special forces officers W. Stanley Moss and Patrick Leigh Fermor, together with a small band of Cretan partisans, kidnapped the general, then evaded numerous German checkpoints and patrols for nearly three weeks as they maneuvered across the mountainous island to a rendezvous with the boat that finally whisked them away to Allied headquarters in Cairo.

"A twin masterpiece of action and narrative." —Spectator
"[An] exciting account of a feat which demanded an extreme of daring and determination." —London Times
The 2011 Paul Dry Books edition includes an Afterword by Patrick Leigh Fermor.
