GREECE, BRITAIN, AUSTRALIA, NEW ZEALAND: DOMINION TROOPS WITH THE ANDARTES DURING THE OCCUPATION, 1941-1944, WWII


"I LIVED WITH GREEK GUERRILLAS", by E.B.Burton (Melbourne, 1945), records the experiences of Bruce Vary in Greece in the years 1941-1944. Burton was in essence the editor of Vary's account of the facts.

I bought this book in an antiquarian bookshop in Australia - it must be one of the less well-known accounts of a British Commonwealth/ Dominion soldier's life amongst the Greek andartes in Occupied Greece, 1941-1944. I have not seen it cited in the better-known British accounts of the period. Abebooks has two copies currently available from Australian book-sellers.
