13. 1821: THE GREEK WAR OF INDEPENDENCE

It began as a spark in the Peloponnese and grew to suck in the Great Powers. It was an eleven year adventure full of heroism and unspeakable savagery with a glittering, international cast that included Byron, Delacroix and hundreds of young philhellenes who went out to fight and die. It ended with the last naval battle fought under sail and changed Europe forever.
