At the Great War raged in Europe, Athens, the city of the Acropolis, turned into a place of violence and political intrigue where nothing was or could be kept secret. This book reveals the activities of British, German, and French spymasters in 1914-1918. All spymasters, overzealous and amateurs, were involved in countless real and imagined plots at a time of constitutional crisis. The Anglophile Prime Minister Eleftherios Venizelos insisted that Greece join the Entente against the central powers. King Constantine demanded Greece remain neutral, to the strategic advantage of Kaiser Wilhelm II, whose sister, Sofia, he had married.
