Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Greece entered World War II on 28 October 1940, when the Italian army invaded from Albania. The Greek army dealt the first land victory for the Allies (see Battle of Britain for first Allied Victory), by stalling the invasion and pushing Mussolini's forces back into Albania. Hitler was reluctantly forced to send his own forces to overcome Greece in April 1941, and delay the invasion of the Soviet Union by six weeks. This is considered by some historians as the first turning point of the war, since the delay proved disastrous to the German invasion, with the onset of the Russian winter and the strong resistance of the Soviet armed forces halting it before the gates of Moscow.
