The fascinating story of Greece's struggle for independence.

For nearly four centuries generations of Greeks suffered economic and intellectual poverty under Turkish occupation, all the while maintaining an unshakeable desire for human dignity and liberty, attributes inherited and retained over centuries from their Hellenic ancestors.

News of the outbreak of the War of Independence in 1821 evoked deep emotions amongst enlightened peoples everywhere and found its expression in Philhellenism - a movement based on wide sympathy for the Greeks as the direct descendents of the parents of Western civilisation.

Includes 40 color images from major art galleries in London and the Louvre Museum.

Makes an excellent gift for your Greek friends.

Colour cover, 210 x 275mm, colour illustrations throughout, 174 pages, soft cover.
