The American Hellenic Institute Foundation (AHIF) is proud to announce the publication of Modern Greeksby Costas Stassinopoulos. It is a gripping story of struggle and triumph in Greece from 1940 to 1949 and concentrates on three critical phases of Greek history: The war against the Italians and the Germans; the national resistance, and the civil war that followed.
The author fought in the heroic resistance against the fascist invaders and vividly recounts how Greece, ancient cradle of democracy, helped save democracy in its darkest hour. The sacrifice, honor, and successes of the Greek armed forces and the Greek guerrillas drew the admiration of the free world and kindled hope for the final victory of the Allied powers.
