Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The relationship between Britain and Greece, situated at the opposite ends of Europe, has been close and troubled, especially since the emergence of Greece as an independent state in the 1830s. The essays in this book, some previously unpublished, focus on aspects of British-Greek relations—military, diplomatic, and academic—during the 20th-century. A particular area of interest is the Second World War, when British involvement in Greek affairs reached it climax, just before she surrendered her role as Greece's principal external patron to the United States.

Book News Annotation:

With a dust jacket picturing Winston Churchill with the Greek Archbishop in 1944, this volume of seven essays probes the stormy relationship between Greece and Britain as its patron from the 1830s until 1947, when the US assumed that role. A particular focus is the controversial role of the Special Operations Executive, the agency charged with supporting resistance in occupied Europe, and its often strained relations with the Foreign Office and its American cousin, the Office of Strategic Services. The British (archeological) School's promotion of the study of modern Greece is also recounted. Two of the papers make their debut with others collected from 1975-1993. Clogg, a fellow at St. Antony's College, is the author of A Concise History of Greece (1992).
