KIRKUS REVIEW

A testimonial to courage, spirit, victory from defeat, as C.B.S. correspondent tells, from personal experience, and what she has learned from others after her departure, of the years 1940-1943 in Greece. Of the days before the onslaught, of the unbelievable victories when the Italian invaders were routed, shattering the Axis myth of invincibility; of British aid, scanty but enough to hearten the Greeks; of the confusion of defeat and invasion and the government scandals; of the conquerors and their conduct; of Greek activities against their new rulers, in the underground and exile; -- this combines to give a graphic picture of a gallant people. Some of the feeling of Robert St. John in its white hot feeling -- a worthy tribute.
