Greece, the Decade of War: Occupation, Resistance and Civil War
Format: Paperback / softback
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing PLC
In this book, acclaimed historian David Brewer investigates explores 1940s Greece — one of the most tumultuous decades in Greece’s modern history. Beginning in 1941, the occupation of Greece by Germany was intensely brutal: children starved on the streets of Athens; the Jewish population was decimated in the Holocaust; heroic acts of resistance were met with vicious reprisals. When Greece was finally freed from Nazi rule in 1944, the fractured and embittered nation became engulfed in civil war, as conflict flared between the British and American-sponsored government and communist-led rebels. In Greece, The Decade of War, Brewer expertly analyses these events and in doing so provides a compelling military and political history.
