Armies of the Greek-Turkish War 1919-22, Paperback

Armies of the Greek-Turkish War 1919-22 Paperback

Illustrated by Stephen Walsh

Part of the Men-at-Arms series



This is a comprehensive guide to the armies that fought a devastating and decisive conflict in the Eastern Mediterranean between the two World Wars of the 20th century.

From the initial Greek invasion, designed to "liberate" the 100,000 ethnic Greeks that lived in Western Turkey and had done for centuries, to Mustafa Kemal Ataturk's incredibly efficient formation of a national government and a regular army, this was a war that shaped the geopolitical landscape of the Mediterranean to this day.

It gave birth to the modern Turkish state, displacing millions and creating bitter memories of atrocities committed by both sides.

Augmented with very rare photographs and beautiful illustrations, this ground-breaking title explores the history, organization, and appearance of the armies, both guerilla and conventional, that fought in this bloody war.
