Politics can get complicated. After the end of German occupation of Greece in WWII, were two groups that wanted to take power: the non-Communists/Government Army and the Communists.

The civil war was fought on and off between 1943 and 1949. The United States provided support to the Greek government in order to prevent Greece from falling into the Soviet sphere of influence.
 

A little bit about the ancient library of Alexandria

The Library’s founders wanted it to be a repository of knowledge, so they sent agents with large sums of money to buy as many scrolls as possible about any subject and by any author. The Library throve for decades and became especially famous for its many works on literary criticism. The Library of Alexandria was destroyed in a war during the late 3rd century A.D.
