K how vabule are the island thought like how much of a diffrence would it make in the greek economy like I feel like they would want even more than that
It should include Corfu. Technically it should also include Sazan island off Vlore in Albania, which I'd personally have fun with in the early 20th century.
Exactly! Throw in a little Italy for good measure.
Well the Ionian Islands were and still are among the wealthiest regions in Greece due to their prominent placement along important trade routes in the Ionian, Adriatic, and Mediterranean Seas. They also boast a prominent agriculture industry and they possess a large population around 200,000, so they would definitely be a solid acquisition for Greece.How much of a boost would it be to have the ionan island be added to greece, how much of a boost would that be, does that include corfu?
Why not include Greek Baktria or Alexandria while we're at it.Okay, you’re right, more competing claims make more fun.
What else can Greece take just to irritate other nations? Mostly useless areas that are more propaganda than anything
Cyrenaica before oil, for instance. Maybe an invasion of Two Sicilies and Greece takes over the handful of Griko-speaking villages down there?
(I’m just messing around, Sazan actually seems like it could be a useful naval base. That’s how the Soviets used it)
Why not include Greek Baktria or Alexandria while we're at it.
So this was mostly OTL set-up, but still really interesting to read. And I am curious to see how the second Persian invasion of Afghanistan goes.
If Persia does remain an independent, potent nation ITTL, that will be a major thorn in the side of the British. Persia is in an excellent location to interfere with British influence in the Middle East...
Why stop there, Greek Lydia, Greek Pontus, Greek Syria, and Greek Mesopotamia would surely be nice as well!I wouldn’t exactly call Alexandria unimportant or peripheral
Baktria would be nice, of course, but Greece has to actually be able to reach there first! Greek Cilicia, Greek Armenia, Greek Caspian Sea, Greek Turkmenistan, then Greek Baktria!
Maybe will even see a mass revolt in the balkans of serbes Bulgarians and other groups if the initial advance against the succeed ottomans then we could see some of the great powers to get involved or force the ottomans to go to a peace accord to force them to give these states rights
