METAXAS JUGEND - A picture album of the Greek Fascist Youth EON (Εθνική Οργάνωση Νεολαίας)

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Metaxas Jugend: A picture album of the Greek Fascist Youth Organization EON (Εθνική Οργάνωση Νεολαίας) features over 400 pictures of the Greek fascist equivalent to the German Hitlerjugend. These pictures, some of them very rare, provide a straight and completely visual insight into a massive youth organization that reached 1,250,000 members - by 1941 over one sixth of the entire Greek population wore the dark blue uniform of the EON. This book is structured around 14 different aspects of the organization, from military training to sports and leisure, and vividly shows how EON members were drowned into the new collective life of the Metaxas regime, from their participation in nationalist parades to their role in the Greek-Italian war in the winter of 1940-41. The book gives an illustrated, pictures-only account of one of the most obscure yet most fascinating organizations in interwar Europe.
