I’m an historian from Ireland, with a specialisation in East German history, living in Athens. I should have stared blogging when I moved to Greece three years ago, or at least when Big Tom recommended that I do so.

Surfing the internet, I’ve come across so many interesting articles (they are mostly in English as my Greek still isn’t up to scratch) on Modern Greek history. Instead of consigning them to my bookmark files, where they have tended to languish, unread, I’m going to post them here, adding some comments of my own
