Description

One of the greatest politicians of postwar Greece whose stormy course influenced the political developments for seven decades, narrates his own story, determined to disclose everything.

Based on the personal interviews that Konstantinos Mitsotakis gave to journalist Alexis Papahelas for ten years (2007-2016), under the condition to get publicized after his death, this book is probably the most significant political testimony that has been published over the recent decades.

Through the pages of this book, Konstantinos Mitsotakis does not only uncover his fascinating life story, from his contribution to the avoidance of civil war in Crete in 1943 and his first service as deputy in 1946 (“I went through elections without wearing suit but the warrant officer’s uniform”) till the “Unrelenting Struggle” and Apostasy, and from Dictatorship to the Political Changeover down to his Premiership, but he also shares his critical opinion for everyone and everything up to 2014.

Using his characteristic way of speaking which combined simple scholar Greek language and Cretan vernacular, the turbulent political history of Greece is brought to light and its protagonists get portrayed with ruthless accuracy.

This book reveals, fascinates, shocks, disquiets. Apart from being a momentous political heritage, apart from being a book of revelations, is also a shocking apprehension of the unique countenance of Greece, described by an exceptionally insightful, realistic and important politician that played a leading role over the last seventy years of Greek history.
