An authoritative history of the Greek Civil War and its profound influence on American foreign policy and the post–Second World War period  

In his comprehensive history André Gerolymatos demonstrates how the Greek Civil War played a pivotal role in the shaping of policy and politics in post–Second World War Europe and America and was a key starting point of the Cold War. Based in part on recently declassified documents from Greece, the United States, and the British Intelligence Services, this masterful study sheds new light on the aftershocks that have rocked Greece in the seven decades following the end of the bitter hostilities.
André Gerolymatos is professor and director of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Centre for Hellenic Studies at Simon Fraser University. His recent books include Castles Made of Sand: A Century of Anglo-American Espionage and Intervention in the Middle East and The Balkan Wars.
