British and American policy with regard to Greece 1943-1947: the transition from British to American patronage
Frazier, Robert (1989) British and American policy with regard to Greece 1943-1947: the transition from British to American patronage. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
British Foreign Office efforts during World War II to ensure the peaceful restoration of the King and his Government-in-Exile after Greece was liberated were frustrated by the King's refusal, with Churchill's support, to submit himself to a plebiscite. The United States refused to become involved (except for an unwarranted interference by Roosevelt) and generally disapproved of British policies. The return of the Government-in-Exile to Greece without a firm commitment by the King concerning his future resulted in a Communist-led revolt which was ended only by British military intervention and by Churchill finally forcing the King to accept a regency and the plebisicite.
