En grekisk tragedi: om Churchill och "befrielsen"av Grekland
Strömstad Akademi.
2012 (svensk)Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
Abstract [en]

According to Winston Churchill it was the British who liberated Greece from the Nazi occupation. This is the story we are told in his famous six-volume history The Second World War. Furthermore, the reason for the British attack on the Greek population by the end of the war is said to have been preventing the resistance movement, EAM/ELAS, from approaching the Soviet bloc, the ultimate aim of the campaign being the introduction of democracy in Greece. In my paper I will show to what extent this account of facts is disputed by recent research. Today international experts on Greek history agree that the country was liberated by the resistance movement, who had already defeated the Nazi occupants when British troops arrived. Churchill's claim to have introduced democracy is equally dismissed. Instead, he is depicted as someone obsessed by his plan to crush the resistance movement and reinstall the pro-British king George II on the throne, against the wish of a large majority of the population. Nor is the thesis retained of armed violence against the Greeks as necessary to escape Soviet influence. EAM/ELAS is rather seen as a democratically minded majority of Non-Communist nationalists, Orthodox Christians and intellectual Social Democrats.
