Eternal memory for the Greek soldiers who gave their life to defend their nation's liberty, eternal memory for the Italian soldiers who fell victims to the delusions of their Duce, eternal remembrance for the 10% of the Greek people which perished under the Nazi yoke. Never again nazism, never again fascism, never forget...

October 28 is now known in Greece as Ohi Day, or “Anniversary of the No”, when Greek Prime Minister Metaxas said No to the Italian ultimatum. My respects to the Greeks and may the fallen on both sides of the war rest in peace.

In any case though, with Greece under attack by Italy and a potentially dangerous second attack from Bulgaria, I don’t think Greece might be able to last a few weeks. Perhaps this Balkan conflict could be a short one?

The Italien invasion of Greece is truly the stuff of legend. Some people say that the ghost of Luigi Cadorna himself appeared on the battlefield, yelling at the retreating soldiers for being such bloody cowards.
