In 1821, Greece rose up in bloody revolt against the oppressive might of the Ottoman empire. Determined to end four hundred years of slavery or die in the attempt, Greek patriots began their unyielding struggle for liberty and independence. In this beautifully illustrated book (over 50 pictures and maps) the author depicts the cruel centuries of Turkish occupation and oppression. He analyzes the causes of the War of Independence and gives a vivid and graphic description of the bitter struggle that gave birth to the modern Greek nation.
