In this sumptuous volume, Greece's ancient marble ancient amphitheaters, temples, and columns stand guard like the gods of Olympus. The Acropolis, Delphi, and the age-old theater of Epidaurus appear in an entirely new light. Yann Arthus-Bertrand, a French photographer known for his aerial views, has captured these classic symbols of another age along with the grandeur of the rocky Mediterranean landscape, lush olive groves, and glorious islands. Journalist Janine Trotereau's evocative captions illuminate Arthus-Bertrand's breathtaking views and provide geographical, historical, and cultural information.

The air battle for Yugoslavia, Greece and Crete began in June 1940 with the Italian declaration of war. In the past, there has been much controversy amongst air historians on many of the details of the operations. It was here, for example, that "Pat" Pattie believed by many to be the Royal Air Force's "unknown" top-scoring fighter pilot of the whole war, saw most of his action. Just how many kills did he achieve and how? Taken from extensive research into available British, Italian and German records, and interviews and correspondence with survivors or relatives of those present, this book seeks to provide an accurate portrait of the air war for Yugoslavia, Greece and Crete from 1940-41.

On 28th October 1940, the Greek premier, Ioannis Metaxis, refused to accept a deliberately provocative ultimatum from Mussolini and Italian forces began the invasion of Greece via Albania. This aggression was prompted by Mussolini's desire for a quick victory to rival Hitler's rapid conquest of France and the Low Countries. On paper, Greek forces were poorly equipped and ill-prepared for the conflict but Mussolini had underestimated the skill and determination of the defenders. Within weeks the Italian invasion force was driven back over the border and Greek forces actually advanced deep into Albania.A renewed Italian offensive in March 1941 was also given short shrift, prompting Hitler to intervene to save his ally. German forces invaded Greece via Bulgaria on 6 April. The Greeks, now assisted by British forces, resisted by land, sea and air but were overwhelmed by the superior German forces and their blitzkrieg tactics. Despite a dogged rearguard action by Anzac forces at the famous pass of Thermopyale, Athens fell on the 27th April and the British evacuated 50,000 troops to Crete. This island, whose airfields and naval bases Churchill considered vital to the defence of Egypt and the Suez Canal, was invaded by German airborne troops the following month and eventually captured after a bitter thirteen-day battle. The remaining British troops were evacuated and the fall of Greece completed. John Carr's masterful account of these desperate campaigns, while not disparaging the British and Commonwealth assistance, draws heavily on Greek sources to emphasize the oft-neglected experience of the Greeks themselves and their contribution to the fight against fascism.

'Greece on Air' offers a discussion of the fascinating history of public engagements thought via the BBC Radio, from the birth of domestic broadcasting in the 1920s up to the 1960s. The range of programmes broadcast in this period includes engagements with ideas from and about ancient Greece in twentieth-century Britain. Wrigley draws on the vast amount of evidence that exists in the written archives to develop a full understanding of the role of the radio medium in public engagements with ancient Greece in twentieth-century Britain.
