The Greek civil war took place between 1943 and 1949. It was one of the most painful episodes of Greek history. This paper will deal with the role of the Greek civil war in the International History of the post war era, especially because it belonged to the transitional period between the end of the Second World War and the start of the Cold War. At the outset, I will show that this war was not merely a domestic issue. I will then describe the characteristics of the Anglo-American interventions in Greece which gave rise to the Greek civil war its international dimensions. Finally, I will show that this conflict was an important episode of the cold war even if the involvement of western powers in it was based on incorrect perceptions of Soviet objectives.
