Abstract [en]

Greece was a latecomer to the Great War.1 After being partially involved in the Entente since 1915, Greece formally joined it in 1917, although its active participation was relatively brief. In collective remembrance, the Greek experience of World War One is overshadowed by events that preceded it and, above all, by its catastrophic aftermath. Greece’s Great War between 1917-1918 is best understood as an episode within a continuum of wars and turmoil stretching between 1912 and 1922. The bitter clash over the country’s entry into the European conflict reverberated in Greek political life long after the original cause of dispute—intervention vs. neutrality—had become irrelevant. In this respect, the circumstances surrounding the decision to join the war had a far more traumatic impact than the casualties suffered during it. The reason for this is that the decision cannot be easily separated from its ultimate outcome, the Asia Minor Catastrophe of 1922.
