Overview

"This is an impressive collection of essays on a neglected subject. It is very useful to have a book that is focused in important ways on what happened at the local level. Very little attention has been devoted by historians to the themes under discussion in this collection. The essays are refreshingly free of ideological bias."—Richard Clogg, Oxford University

"This collection of exciting essays discusses the tragedy of Greece in the wartime and postwar years. Its success is due to the widely recognized expertise of the editor, the excellence of contributors, the partial opening of the Greek archives, the more democratic atmosphere in Greece, and the end of the Cold War. The wide variety of authors—ranging from young to well-established historians and including at least one former participant in the civil war—is a further asset. It reads well and is a significant contribution to scholarship."—Istvn Dek, Columbia University

Editorial Reviews

Times Literary Supplement
This is one of the most contentious and incompletely studied periods in Greek history, and these essays throw light into places which were until recently obscured by political prejudice, some of them even assumed to lie outside the bounds of historiography.
— Michael Llewellyn Smith
Journal of Military History
This excellent collection of first-rate case studies is not only a significant contribution to the history of Greece but is of serious value to anyone interested in the comparative study of occupation and civil war, as well as reconciliation and reconstruction.
