Chapter Summary

On 23 September 1915, after Bulgaria entered the war, the Hellenic army was mobilized. This mobilization was decreed as a precautionary measure, and ended on 22 June 1916, under pressure from the countries of the Entente. Then, when Venizelos formed his provisional government at Salonica, a mobilization decree was also published on 18 April 1917 on behalf of that movement, while during the same period Constantine and the royalist governments of Athens benefited from the enthusiastic support of the reservists, who, since the demobilization of June 1916, had been organized in leagues. This chapter examines the continuous mobilization campaigns in Greece, emphasizing particularly on the propaganda efforts of both royalists and Venizelists in order to convince each time the Greeks to respond or not to the call to arms, influencing in this way the fate of their homeland.
