About the book:

Steely determination and abhorance of totalitarianism was the rudder that kept Helen Vlachos on course during the months of living under house arrest. The patrician owner and free thinking manager of one of Greece's most important dailies...The Kathimerini, Vlachos opted to shut down the presses and endure internal exile rather than to comply with the censorship outlined by the military dictatorship of Colonel Papadopoulos and his henchmen. Recorded here are the events of 1967, as well as key references to World War II, as experienced by Mrs. Vlachos. Good copy, without dustjacket. White covered boards quarterbound with blue cloth. Title in black. Pastedowns illustrated with British and Italian newspaper copy. Frontispiece is of the author at her desk at the Kathimerini office on Socrates Street, Athens. Several historically significant photos, including those of Winston Churchill, Eleanor Roosevelt, Nikita Khrushchev, Robert Openheimer, Clark Gable, and others. FIRST PRINTING of 1st edition. Gambit Incorporated, Boston, 1970, 183 pp., including index. Will mail out within 12 hours of payment confirmation.
