'Bearing Gifts to Greeks' focuses on the under-documented work of the relief agencies involved in dealing with wartime famine and humanitarian aid in Greece during the tripartite occupation and the ensuing civil war in the 1940s. A selection of remarkable photographs from the time, many of which have not been published before, support the text.

'Bearing Gifts to Greeks fills a gap in the history of the war in Greece, and stands well alongside the better trodden paths of political and military history of the occupation, the resistance, and the Allied Military Mission. It is a story of misery and inhumanity, but also of inspiring human action and hope.' - The Anglo-Hellenic Review
