The capture of Maleme airfield let the German invaders reinforce their shattered airborne forces. Flying in fresh mountain troops, the Germans advanced eastward. Unaware of the new Allied line forming-up on a road running north-south near Suda, the Germans ran headlong into a force of Australian and New Zealand infantry. The mutual surprise gave way to a spontaneous bayonet charge, which completely routed a battalion of Germans.
