Fascism in Greece: The Metaxas Dictatorship 1936-1941 (Hardcover)
From 1936 to 1941 Greece was ruled dictatorially by a duumvirate of King George II and General Metaxas. In the scholarly literature the regime of 4th August, as it called itself, is described as a royal dictatorship. Its characterization as fascist is rejected by most authors to this day. Harry Cliadakis proves the opposite in his book; his description leaves no doubt about the fascist character of the regime. In a contribution by Heinz Richter this interpretation is strengthened: It was fasciscm in a political system based on clientelism.
