Greece in the Great War

King Alexander I of GreeceFour score and a baker's dozen years ago today, the Kingdom of Greece declared war against the Central Powers.

Wrote a commenter last year:

Many times I have heard that the Great War was fought to defend democracy, or so that "small nations might be free." Greece is my favorite response to this. Greece remained neutral until Great Britain invaded, deposed the king, and established a puppet government.
