C. M. Woodhouse (1917-2001) was the author of several classic works on modern Greek history.
'This is the story of the communist and non-communist resistance to the Germans that sprang up in the Greek mountains, and its interaction with the politics of the old political world of Greece and the strategies of the allies. No one was better placed to describe the events of this turbulent period than C. M. Woodhouse, who came to know Greece intimately. The Struggle for Greece is his masterful telling of the story.' -- Michael Llewellyn-Smith, historian and former British Ambassador to Greece
