Greece The War of Independence
Source: The Library of Congress Country Studies
Despite decades of intellectual and logistical preparation, in actuality the Greek struggle for independence demonstrated little unity among supporting elements. Only the intervention of European powers protecting their own geopolitical interests ensured the emergence of a new Greek state. For nearly a century thereafter, Greek policy remained preoccupied with the many Greeks still under Ottoman rule after the postwar settlement.
