A Civil War story (PART II)

The Greek Civil War (1944-49) was one of the bloodiest civil conflicts of the modern era, and grew out of the various resistance movements of World War II, during which Greece was under direct Axis occupation. Known in Greek as the "Emfylio," the Civil War saw the Greek Government army (backed by The United Kingdom and the United States) fight against the Democratic Army of Greece (backed by Yugoslavia, Albania and Bulgaria), as the latter tried, ultimately unsuccessfully, to take over Greece. The losses on both sides were enormous, with tremendous violence inflicted upon civilian as well as military populations. During the Civil War, the national army pursues guerilla fighters in the village of Dafno Fokidas. On the night of Easter, young Sophia Skreki comes face to face for the first time with Aris Velouchiotis (b. Athanasios Klaras), the Communist leader of the Greek People's Liberation Army -- known by its acronym, "ELAS." A figure who was larger than life, Velouchiotis struck her with both fear and awe. (PART II)
