http://janson.com In mid-June 1920, London approaches Greek Prime Minister Venizelos for help in defeating the Turkish nationalists, who have even begun to attack British troops in Istanbul. The Allies agree to let Greek forces advance from Izmir into Turkey, and on June 22 the invasion begins. By the following year, Greek troops have advanced deep into Turkish territory. An exultant Lloyd George proclaims, Turkey is no more. But the Turks themselves arent convinced. Kemal plans to use the same strategy employed by the Russians against Napoleon in 1812: draw the enemy into the interior, wear them down, and then counterattack.
