The British Dilemma before Liberation, December 1943–October 1944

  • Robert Frazier


At the end of the Second Cairo Conference, Tsouderos and the British were left with the task of picking up the pieces. The first action was taken by the Greek Prime Minister, apparently without British prompting or knowledge. On 10 December 1943, he told Churchill that he had persuaded the King to make a back-dated modification to his letter of 8 November, which was a promise that when he did make his decision concerning his return to Greece, he would do so ‘in agreement with my Government’. The addition of these few words seem to have been taken by Tsouderos and the British as a major improvement, although it is difficult to see why. It did not amount to obtaining approval by the Greek people, given that the Government-in-Exile was not elected.1
