After the Battle Athens December 1944

Issue no 155 of this magazine covers the British involvement in Greece at the end of WW2. Great edition of the magazine filled with before and after photos. It gives a good background too and description of the fighting. Well worth getting.

Oh dear, no posts since June last year, Absolutely shocking sorry about that. But to be honest the Balkans have been last thing on my mind last year. I had all the build up to and attended my brothers wedding. Although it was held on Corfu there wasn't much for the Balkan history buff. Possibly not the first Grecoscots wedding but a first for me. The Greek traditional dancing wearing kilts was pretty unusual.
