The Greek Civil War took place between 1944 and 1949 after the Communist-led resistance movement ELAS (which had since 1942 been fighting anti-Communist Greek partisans as well as the occupying German forces) attacked forces loyal to the Greek Government-in-Exile, which had returned to Athens after the German withdrawal. The communist rising was defeated with the aid of British troops.

Total losses incurred by the resistance movement were around 10,000, with the exiled government's forces lost about 55,000 men.[1]
