The Kapetanios: Partisans And Civil War In Greece, 1943-1949. Translated from the French by John Howe.

Partisans and Civil War in Greece, 1943-1949, by D Eudes, translated by. .Translated from the French by John Howe

Partisans and Civil War in Greece, 1943-1949, by D Eudes, translated by J Howe, revd by D Binder. It is somber reading: in the case of Walter R. Roberts exhaustively thorough, in the case of Dominique Eudes, a Frenchman, thoroughly exciting.

Translated by John Howe. At the center of the stage are the kapetanios, the guerrilla chiefs who organized the partisans in the Greek mountains. The complicated and dramatic course of the Civil War in Greece had, for lack of parties interested in reconstructing the truth of its events, never been narrated prior to the appearance of this volume. It closed a gap in the history of our times, and did so with thoroughness and vivid journalistic immediacy. Their first leader was Aris Velouchiotis, a wild, bearded figure who owed something to Chapaiev and prefigured Castro ; the second was Markos Vafiadis, who continued the armed struggle into its last hopeless stages.

Most people in this country believe the lie (told by both sides during the cold war) that Stalinism equals communism, and that it's revolutionary. Stalinism was the rule of a privileged bureaucracy, and the Communist Parties around the world were not meant to make revolutions, but to support the rule of that bureaucracy. Revolutions were viewed, at best, as bargaining chips for getting concessions from the imperialist powers.

This book explains how the Greek Communist Party led the fight against the German occupation, and could have easily come to power, but Stalin's deals with the US and Britain led to him ordering that party to welcome British troops into Greece (this happened in many other countries). The British handed Greece back to the monarchists. The Communist Party had yet another opportunity; they were popular enough to win a democratic election, but following Stalin, didn't take part in it.

Later on, for various reasons, probably a major one being to kill off the best people in their party, they started a small scale guerrilla operation, which gave the Greek government the opportunity to deal them major blows in what turned into a civil war.

To understand what Stalinism was (and to the degree that it still exists is), I suggest starting with two books by Trotsky: The Revolution Betrayed and The Third International after Lenin.

To understand the difference between the Stalinist Soviet Union, and the revolutionary government of Cuba, there are many good books. I recommend starting with Cuba and Angola: Fighting for Africa's Freedom and Our Own and Visions of Freedom: Havana, Washington, Pretoria, and the Struggle for Southern Africa, 1976-1991 (New Cold War History).

For the formation of modern Greece, from the very little i've read, I recommend The War Correspondence of Leon Trotsky: The Balkan Wars 1912-13 and Salonica, City of Ghosts: Christians, Muslims and Jews 1430-1950.

And for why Stalinism collapsed, but the US didn't gain by it, read New International No.11: U.S. Imperialism Has Lost the Cold War.

I was interested in reading further about the Greek Civil War. I am a Greek American and a friend had the book but written in Greek which I could not read. I found it extremely interesting and informative and recommend it to anyone interested in modern history.
