“History of the Hellenic Air Force”, Vol. IV, 1941-1944
The contribution of the Hellenic Air Force in the operations during the German invasion, the escape to Crete and Egypt, as well as the recreation and action in the Middle East and Italy.
During the German invasion the Greek pilots performed their duties sufficiently, but the encounter with the Luftwaffe was unequal. The few airplanes that managed to escape to the Middle East constituted the basis for the re-establishment of the HAF.
Three Hellenic Squadrons were created, which participated in convoy escorting, anti-submarine search, aggressive patrolling, reconnaissance, attacks and interceptions.
In the summer of 1943 two of the Hellenic Squadrons participated in the air raids against Crete.
From May to November 1944 the action of the Hellenic Air Force was continued in Italy with bombing, reconnaissance and patrolling missions.
When the German occupation forces departed Greece, the Hellenic Squadron repatriated and a new era for the Hellenic Air Force began.
