The ‘Revolution of 1821’ was arguably the most significant event to impact the Greek peninsula in the nineteenth century, leading to the establishment of a Greek State and the incorporation of new lands. However, approximately 100 after this event, the Greeks would once more be shaken by another event, which on this occasion, would lead to disaster and to the cessation of any further ‘revolutions’. This presentation examines the Minor Asia disaster of 1921 and the seeds that it lay which led to another disaster, the Greek Civil War; an event that has become a major focus in Greece-based historiography since the 1980s. Within presentation, we also look at its demographic impact and the departure of Greece’s youngest and bravest to other lands.
