The Greek civil war took place between 1943 and 1949. It is one of the most painful episodes of Greece history. We can wonder what was the role of the Greek civil war in the International History of post war era, especially its belonging to the transitional period between the end of the Second World War and the start of the Cold War.
First, I will show that this war was not merely a domestic issue. Then, I will describe the characteristics of the Anglo-American interventions in Greece which gave to the Greek civil war its international dimension. Finally, I will show that this conflict was an important episode of the cold war even if the involvement of western powers was based on incorrect perceptions of Soviet objectives.
