Editorial Reviews

Fritz Stern
A superb book on the horrors afflicting wartime Greece. . . . [Mazower] has done vast archival research and emerged with a gripping, readable and human account, setting every moment of a tragic period in appropriate context.
Mark Almond
Fascinating. . . . [Mazower] succeeds in getting under the skin of the occupation. . . . [This book] conjures up, in vivid detail, life under an occupation that had shattered old certainties and replaced them with painful choices, cynical compromises, and hopes undercut by the daily death toll.
Richard Eder
A vivid picture of the German occupier�s mind and actions. . . . Mazower�s arguments are always fair.
Booknews
Draws on a wealth of first-hand accounts and previously untapped archival sources to offer a detailed chronicle of the physical and psychological impact of German occupation on the Greeks. Incorporates the viewpoints of German soldiers, diplomats, and SS officials as they expressed those viewpoints themselves. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
