Grecian Adventure: Greece 1941 – Anzac Trail Stories and Photographs


Jim Claven’s Grecian Adventure: Greece 1941 – Anzac Trail Stories and Photographs takes the reader on a journey across Greece in April and May 1941, following the Anzac trail throughout the Greek campaign, from the northern Greek battlefields of Vevi and Servia, through Brallos and Corinth, to Kalamata and the Mani, and on to Crete. The reader is guided by the individual stories and photographs of some of the Australian soldiers who served in that desperate and fateful campaign. The soldiers featured include Private Syd Grant and Sergeant Alfred Huggins, both from Victoria’s Western District. A feature of the book is the reproduction of nearly 100 original photographs of Greece during the campaign, from the collections of Syd and Alfred, two collections which the author assisted in their donation to Melbourne’s State Library of Victoria. These amazing images are enhanced with many more taken the author as he walked Greece’s Anzac trail over many years. The book is a feast for the eyes, telling the campaign story in personal terms, in words and pictures. The book is published by Melbourne’s Pammessinian Brotherhood Papaflessas.
