Languages of publication
This study analyzes the position of the United States of America toward the Greek question between 1945 and 1947. Its goal is to answer the question of why, with the end of the Second World War, the interest of the United States took such an interest in the political situation in Greece – a country that had traditionally fallen under the influence of Great Britain. It discusses the reasons why the American government decided in 1947 to replace the United Kingdom in its power position in Greece. The entire issue is set into the wider context of Greek political developments in the years 1944–1947 without neglecting the perspective of the USA in the initial stages of the Greek Civil War or the reasons for Great Britain’s withdrawal from Greece. This study is based upon archival research in the United States and Great Britain, and many volumes of source materials as well as secondary literature.
