Sir Patrick Leigh Fermor archive (Scotland)

Sir Patrick Leigh Fermor archive (Scotland)Sir Patrick Leigh Fermor was regarded as one of the 20th century's most important travel writers. He also organised one of the most daring feats of the Second World War, when he kidnapped the German garrison commander on Crete. His exploits made it to the big screen in the 1956 film 'Ill Met by Moonlight', starring Dirk Bogarde. Now the National Library of Scotland has added Leigh Fermor's archive to the wealth of travel literature in the national collections
