This review is from: War in the Aegean: The Campaign for the Eastern Mediterranean in World War II (Stackpole Military History) (Paperback)
Little is known on this short and bloody campaign. Very few books are to be found on this theatre of operations.

"After the Batlle" series, excellent as always, treats of the battle of Leros in detail with plenty of rare photographs.

Believe it or not only one single map is proposed. The Aegean sea is littered with islands of all sorts and size and all you get is just one map, and to add insult to injury of poor quality and little interest.
The Dodecanese islands most definitely demand a map. Imagine there's not even a map of the island of Leros where the fighting lasted the longest. None of the islands of Cos, Samos or Rhodes. Up to you to figure out their features, contours, peculiarities and defenses.

Another major omission is the scarcity of infos divulged on the German forces. I would dream to read about The Brandenburgers, the Fallschirmmjäger drop and the Küstenjäger landings.
