British Withdrawal from Greece: Protecting Imperial Power
MetadataShow full item record
The author closely examines primary documents from the British Foreign Office during the period of Greece's war with Turkey in 1921-1922. Great Britain recognized a serious threat to its own interests if it continued to aid Greece against Turkey, and thus withdrew troops and other support. This realpolitik decision cost Britain, but less so than continuing on in a war in which other great European powers were siding with Turkey.
