Abstract

What colours did the revolutionary flag of Rigas Feraios have? What was the conspiratorial name given by the Philiki Etaireia to Alexandros Ypsilantis? Who was the female captain of the “Agamemnon” and who of the which “Kalomira”? How did a warship become artillery and what did General Makriyannis sing to his comrades one night inside the besieged Acropolis? The answers can be found in the pages of this book, which narrates a great historical event, the 1821 Greek Revolution. With his images and maps, it transports us to a world that existed 200 years ago and describes important events. We travel through history and geography to meet the faces and ideas of those who envisioned Greece as a free state and managed to make their dream come true.
