Von Blücher Brothers at Crete
The Brothers von Blücher (German: Gebrüder von Blücher) were a trio of German brothers and Fallschirmjäger of the Luftwaffe who fell in combat within hours of the same day on 21 May 1941 during the fierce Battle of Crete. Their struggle and death are symbolic for the bravery of German Wehrmacht soldiers during World War II, and they are still considered heroes by many Germans.
