: The real truth is in 1914, not very keenly, the King of Greece, Constantine, (married to the Kaiser William's sister), entered the Great War on the sole condition that Cyprus and Asia Minor were to be restored to Greece under the auspicies of the British Empire under Churchill. Never happened.
: Anyway, Kemal had a shit army and the Greeks outran them. Germany stepped in and offered them assistance. Without them, Turkey never stood a chance. Russia was in a complete mess. And the West are full of shit.
Actually, much of the reason we lost in 1922
was because the politicans back in greece demanded that the
that the armies continue on into the interior to ankara, instead of
consolidate the recovered territory near the coasts and organize it.
The 'west' has never had any great love for us, and has seldom
helped us in anything.. usually their 'help' is a think disguise for an attack.
