GRIVAS AND THE STORY OF EOKA. IN UNCLIPPED DUSTWRAPPER
"8vo., First Edition, with 23 plates on 12 and a full-page map in the text, neat signature on front free endpaper; black cloth, gilt back, a very god, clean copy in unclipped dustwrapper. With striking dustwrapper artwork by Biro. This remains the best contemporary account of the notorious head of EOKA, whose 'private army' inflicted over 150 fatal casualties on British service and police personnel in Cyprus between 1954 and 1958. The author knew Grivas well, having saved his life before the conflict, and was the first foreigner to meet him on his return to Cyprus after the amnesty. VERY SCARCE IN THIS CONDITION."
