"In 1936, general Ioannis Metaxas established a fascist regime in Greece. Greek fascism had many similarities with its German and Italian counterparts, yet retained specific features which made it slightly different. Despite the country's numerically small and ill-equipped armed forces, Greece made an important contribution to the Allied efforts in World War II. At the start of the war Greece sided with the Allies and refused to give in to Italian demands (see Oxi Day). On October 28, 1940, the Italians attacked Greece from Albania with inadequate preparation and force, and were initially able to make a progress of some kilometers inside Greek soil. After stopping the invasion, the Greeks launched a counter attack on the 14 November 1940 which pushed the Italians back into Albania. This made good progress at first, but eventually ground to a halt with the fronts stalemated, due to Italian reinforcements, and exhaustion, lack of transport vehicles and inadequate supply on the Greek side. After the failure of a second Italian offensive in March 1941, intended by Mussolini to bring a success for Italian arms before the looming German intervention, the front went relatively quiet, but still forcing the Greeks to commit the bulk of their forces and equipment there, leaving only slight forces to cover the Bulgarian frontier. When the Germans moved into Bulgaria in preparation for the invasion, Greece formally asked for British intervention. This marked the first Allied victory in the war. On April 7th, 1941, the German Army invaded northern Greece, stunning the British and Greeks, and making them pull back their forces from deep into Albania to keep them from being flanked and destroyed. The Greek national sentiment was such that the army had to maintain a position along the "Metaxas Line", all along the northern border of Greece, near the port of Thessalonica. This was untenable from the start, and it was easy for the Germans to break through at multiple points with their Panzer groups. This, in turn, necessitated a Greco-British retreat further to the narrow pass at Thermopylae, where the Germans broke through again, all the way down until German forces were at the Acropolis. After some brief actions on the Peloponnese, the Greeks and British Commonwealth forces retreated to Crete. In the highly contested Battle of Crete, the Germans employed parachute forces and forced the British and New Zealanders off the southern half of the island, making Germany the dominant force in the Mediterranean."
