Greece and the English by Panagiotis Dimitrakis
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The transition to a truly muscular democracy affected the royal families of both Greece and Great Britain throughout the tumultuous twentieth century. Here Panagiotis Dimitrakis unearths the details of British policy towards the kings of Greece, the special connection between the Windsors and the Glucksburgs during the Second World War, the Cold War and the Cyprus revolt, and finally the coming of the junta in Greece in 1967. He sheds light on notable members of Greek royal family and the controversies and secret diplomacy they were implicated in. This engaging and comprehensive history of Anglo-Greek relations provides an overview of Greek history with a unique focus on international relations. Drawing on Foreign Office and declassified American diplomatic and intelligence files as well as Greek archives and recently published diaries, "Greece and the English" will appeal to all those interested in Greek history, British history as well as the fate of monarchies in the modern world.
