Greek soldiers, pushed back the Italian fascist invasion, and then kept on pursuing them beyond the borders into Albania. Note the basic clothing and poor military kit. Despite these shortcomings, between Oct 1940 and March 1941, the poorly equipped Greek army defeated an Italian army five times its size.

Thessaly, Greece, 1942-1944. Greek kids joined the resistance against the Axis Triple occupation of the country. They were organized in "Aetopoula" (i.e. Young Eagles) affiliated to EAM (i.e. National Liberation Front). They mostly served carrying messages to resistants. Here, four Aetopoula, show the marks or torture by the German occupation forces at Thessaly, perhaps in 1944. They were released because the Germans couldn't break them & spared their lives.

Athens, Greece, 1944 October the 12th is liberated from the German occupation.  The poster at Syntagma sq. runs: "The shameful instruments of fascism deserve a double punishment. The people demand "people's courts". EAM" [=National Liberation Front]. Collaborationists found refuge at the newly arrived government and the Brirtish under pretext of willing to fight any EAM attempt to establish a leftist regime.
