Celebrating 200 Years - Modern Greek History

It is 2021, and Greece celebrates 200 years since the struggle for independence to free her from Ottoman rule, began. The struggle for independence and democracy has been tumultuous and bloodied, and arguably at times she has enjoyed surprisingly little of either. Coups, territorial expansion, refugees, plots and counter plots, fascism, foreign occupation, famine, civil wars, political repressions, democratic socialism, foreign domination, and economic catastrophes – even foreign interference and the first use of Napalm bombing.
