That Greece Might Still Be Free
The Philhellenes in the War of IndependenceeBook - 2008
"When in 1821 the Greeks rose in violent revolution against the rule of the Ottoman Turks, waves of sympathy spread across Western Europe and the United States. More than a thousand volunteers set out to fight for the cause. William St Clair meticulously researched and highly readable account of their aspirations and experiences was hailed as definitive when it was first published. Long out of print, it remains the standard account of the Philhellenic movement and essential reading for any students of the Greek War of Independence, Byron, and European Romanticism. This completely revised edition includes a new introduction by Roderick Beaton, an updated bibliography and many new illustrations"--Publisher's description.
