By John S. Koliopoulos

Plundered Loyalties examines the impression of the Axis career (1941-44) and the Greek Civil warfare (1946-49) on Greek West Macedonia's multi-lingual and deeply fragmented population.

The political scenario in that mountainous quarter was once greatly complex, outlined via occupying forces, their 'collaborators,' and resistance firms. Guerrilla task and the attendant harsh reprisals introduced untold anguish to the peasants as a result of starting to be ferocity of the occupiers. The struggle opposed to the occupying forces and the necessity to construct and preserve as bold a guerrilla military as attainable obliged the resistance forces to press their devices' unwilling recruits or even salary struggle opposed to resistance forces ideologically against them.

The state of affairs grew to become much more torturous within the years of civil strife after the struggle, while yesterday's heroes grew to become insurgent opposed to the valid executive of the country.
