Book Description
In the immediate aftermath of the Second World War, China and Greece were the only countries which experienced civil wars; recognised nationalist governments confronted communist movements. In China, Mao led his fighters to victory. In Greece, the communists under Zachariades lost. The outcome of both conflicts shaped part of the enduring Cold War geopolitics. This book provides the first comparative account of secret operations of British and US intelligence services, notably the MI6, the OSS, the Central Intelligence Group and the CIA in the civil wars in China and Greece. The reader will discover the role of secret sources, psychological and other special operations and, threat estimating in the evolving policies of London and Washington. This study, based on primary sources, offers no argument but facts of the hidden wars in China and Greece.
