Greek Monarchy Restored Civil War Begins


In September 1946 the Greeks voted by a margin of 68 percent to 32 percent to return the monarch to Greece. King George II was returned to the thrown. The plebisite which was considered suspect by some, resulted in the start of the Greek Civil War. The war was fought by the communist who had substantial support in Greece and those supporting the Royalist. The war continued for three years and ended in a Communist defeat.
