The Battle of Athens: Fighting for Liberty, Restoring the Rule of Law

The Battle of Athens on 20 April 1941 was a dog-fighting air battle over Athens fought for half an hour between the RAF and the Luftwaffe towards the end of the Battle of Greece. Marmaduke Pattle died in the battle in which Roald Dahl also fought; he describes it in his second autobiography, Going Solo and in the short story 'Katina' which can be found in the book The Great Automatic Grammatizator and Other Stories. A somewhat different account of this battle together with citations will be found towards the end of the entry for Marmaduke Pattle.
