Few episodes in recent history have engendered so much passion among statesmen and their critics, the historians, as the disastrous Greek adventure in Anatolia, under-taken by Venizelos with Allied backing. The great merit of the present study is that the author has cleared away the thick crust of prejudice and legend that has come to envelop the postwar history of Greece, and given us a reliable account of the tortuous history of that epoch. The responsibility of Great Britain, France, Italy, Russia and the United States is weighed and apportioned with impartiality.
