  1. Can't you just acknowledge that Metaxas was a Fascist and a huge admirer of Mussolini, and that the only reason he reluctantly went to war against Italy (which he would have rather avoided – in passing the whole "NO" story is pure fabrication for nationalist self-agrandizing), was because he was a servant of the British Empire?
    Why the reverence? Why the crucial omissions?

  2. My great grandfather fought in Albania in the Greek army and he said the Italian soldiers would let him walk between the lines to grab food and they wouldn’t shoot him, it seemed like none of the Italian soldiers really wanted to fight

  3. You'd think that the Italian Fascist campaign in Abyssinia would have taught them to make better preparations for their campaigns, but you'd be wrong.

  4. toses istories pou tis thymamai apo tote

    my grandfather fought in this war. I have the sword of the weapon. He died in 2003 98 years old and had 1 of the 3 bullets in him. He had told me so many stories that I remember from then

  5. I guess lack of interest and motivation. I heard stories about Italian soldiers surrendering themselves as soon as they crossed into Greece. Thank God they were smart enough not to fight another silly war.

  6. May I suggest you to develop such a well done job by covering South American past conflicts (War of Triple Alliance, Pacific War, Chaco War, so say a few) It wouldn´t have been asking much to cover historical indian anhilations wars perpetrated by American natios as well. Anyway, thanks for posting high quality material.
