FASCIST GREECE

 
Brief: Ioannis Metaxas established in 1936 a far-right conservative dictatorship which had great similarities with its contemporary Italian Fascism and German National Socialism. "Fascist Greece" sports an indepth analysis of the Metaxas regime (1936-1941) and the so far pretty obscure period of Fascism in Greece.

FASCIST GREECE

Synopsis

The fascist era in Greece (1936-1941) is probably the least known and most obscure period of modern Greek history, and has caught so far very little attention from both scholars and historians.

"Fascist Greece (1936-1941)" is the first ever written book in Spanish language which is entirely centered around the quasi-fascist dictatorship of Ioannis Metaxas, the Greek general who turned Greece in a little Nazi Germany in the 1930s.

In this book, the author analyzes the historical and ideological background which gave birth to fascism in Greece and the social, cultural, political and economic policies of the authoritarian regime as well as the troubled foreign affairs, a spurious issue in which the regime tried to keep an almost imposble balance between the ideological affinities (Nazi Germany and fascist Italy) and Great Britain, the traditional sea power of the Mediterranean.

The fascist epoch in Greece terminated little after Metaxas death, but by then the once hated dictator had entered the hall of fame of the legendary Greek heroes because of his almost mythical victory against the many times larger attacking Italian army.

"Fascist Greece (1936-1941)" brings forth an indepth analysis and critique about one of the most interesting historical periods of modern Greece.

About the author

Andreas Markessinis is a writer with a passion for modern Greek history. He is rooted in Cephalonia, the same island Metaxas was from, and has developed a great interest in Ioannis Metaxas and the period of Greek fascism.

He has written dozens of articles in Spanish magazines about modern Greece, and was the founder of the Studia Hellenica project, an online resource website which became the most important website about modern Greece in Spanish-speaking countries.

He is regarded as the greatest specialist in the Metaxas years in Spanish language, and runs now the Metaxas Project, a website entirely dedicated to the figure of Ioannis Metaxas and the history of Greek fascism.
