It features photographs of the liberation of Macedonia as well as the various Aegean Islands - including Lemnos.
The many images of Lemnos show the arrival of the Greek troops on the Island (including naval and air forces), the people of the Island and the celebrations that followed the liberation.
Some of the sites photographed would be visited by the Anzac and other Allied troops in 1915 - such as Therma and its water fountain. Below are just some of the images reproduced in the book.
I urge all interested in the history of Greece and its people during this period - including Lemnos - to purchase a copy on their next trip to Greece or on-line from the publisher.
The book is priced at 38.16€ plus mailing costs.
