My father had just let for the front against the Italians in Albania, so the great victories of Marathon and Salamis sounded even sweeter as our first win against Mussolini's troops in Koritsa
was announced by nonstop church-bell ringing and my mother's thanking God that my father's name was not on the dreaded list of the fallen.
Among these were 'It's Just Greek to Him' (October 29th, 1940), showing a giant Mussolini crashing through a border crossing, and 'The March on Albania--1940' in which Il Duce, dressed as Napoleon and seated back to front on his horse, marches his troops backwards away from their main base at Koritsa
in Albania and towards the sea as the Greeks counter-attack.
