Thomas Gordon (1788 1841), a British army officer and philhellene, was actively involved in the Greek struggle for independence during the period 1821 8. This two-volume work, published in 1833, provides a comprehensive account of the Greek Revolution, portraying the war 'as it really was' and describing atrocities perpetrated by both sides. In his preface, Gordon acknowledges that the contest between the Greeks and the Turks has been written about a great deal. He sets out his aims to 'clear away exaggeration, rectify errors and anachronisms, and supply omissions', and he draws upon insights gained from having lived and fought for several years in Greece. Volume 1 covers the background history of Greece, and up to the end of 1822. Volume 2 continues the narrative until de facto independence in 1827, but cautions that wider European interests may delay the establishment of a viable Greek government."
