THE GERMAN HIGH COMMAND GETS
BUSY

We also found in the German records a memorandum of the fact that the German Foreign Office had been asked to warn the Turkish Government that troops and shipping were being moved to Greece, but to stress that there were no hostile intentions against Turkey.
This precaution was not surprising when we consider the extent of the German preparations, for, although, as I have said, I have no details of the Army and Luftwaf£e movements and activities, they may well have been large if we judge by the German naval activity, of which we naturally found a much more detailed picture among these documents.
By the 20th May the Naval High Command had ordered(l) the laying or the completion of three new German minefields off Greece, including one off Kalamata itself. The German Admiral commanding in the AEgean was ordered to take over control of minefields that the Italians were laying off the western coast of Greece, and German coastal-defence batteries were to be set up in territory under Italian control. These were only some of the steps that were "envisaged or have already been taken" by that date as the Germans had appreciated that almost the whole coast of Greece, as well as the Greek islands, was threatened, though it was hoped that the Allied assaults might be beaten off in spite of German weakness in that area.
These instructions were completed by orders to establish R-boat(2) bases, command stations, naval sea
