The author has provided a compelling account with particular use of Greek sources. This approach does show the British support in a less favourable light than the few accounts already published, but takes nothing from the great bravery of ANZAC troops as they fought a fierce rearguard action. By concentrating on Greek sources, the author has done much to address the neglect of other historians in providing an accurate account of the situation in Greece. Illustration is confined to a b&w photographic plate section and a small number of maps. This illustration adequately supports the text and includes rare photographs.
No one interested in the Mediterranean campaigns of WWII can afford to be without a copy of this book.
