GENERAL GRIVAS ON GUERRILLA WARFARE
General Grivas's skills in guerrilla warfare were honed in WWII as the leader of Organization X, a small resistance force composed of Greek army officers who interfered with the actions of the Axis occupiers. After the war, he set his sights on the British colonial forces who occupied his native Cyprus, eventually facilitating the island's independence. This account of Grivas's successes and strategies is rare, especially with original dust jacket present as in this copy. An important work of revolutionary literature.
