A History of the liberation struggle of EOKA 1955-1959
MetadataShow full item record
The task of compiling the History of the EOKA liberation struggle is rendered difficult by manifold events, both political and military, interwoven over a four-year period (1955-1959). A large number of persons with varying degrees of contribution each were involved in these events. For this reason not everything can be recorded in a book addressed to the reading public at large. The reference to the individual contribution of EOKA members is, therefore, to a very large extent limited. To have attempted the opposite would have required many years of research, covering many more hundreds of pages. This book presents the main events, without reference to the names of those who participated in them, except in those cases where this was deemed necessary. The books by EOKA leader General George Grivas - Dighenis, "Memoirs of the EOKA Struggle 1955 - 1959" and "The Chronicle of the EOKA Struggle 1955-1959" provide all the relevant information in more detail. The Council for the Historical Memory of the EOKA Struggle 1955 - 1959" and many authors have published quite a few works, covering more particular aspects of the liberation struggle and the lives of EOKA heroes. This book records the development of events during the Struggle and offers a general view, without detailed descriptions. To what degree this aim has been achieved it is up to the reader to judge.
