Lieutenant Alfred Genzís 1st Company had two objectives in the airborne assault on Crete. First, to neutralize the anti-aircraft battery located south of Canea and, second, to capture a nearby wireless station. Most of his gliders touched down near their first target. The Germans swiftly scrambled from their gliders and rushed toward the gun positions. . .
