Most Greek military forces surrender to Nazi Germany. Greek forces had been arrayed primarily against Italy, leaving few troops to face the impending German invasion through Bulgaria and Yugoslavia.

Germany is only participating because Italy is unable to handle Greece alone, and as a consequence most major areas of Greece will be occupied by the Nazis.

Greece suffers incredible hardships under Nazi occupation. Around Athens alone, at least 300,000 will starve during the Great Famine of 1941-2.
