This chapter focuses on the events following Venizelos' political comeback in 1928. The return of Venizelos to Greek politics and high office in 1928, despite its controversial domestic impact, proved a watershed for the country's foreign affairs. His four-year term as prime minister confirmed the Cretan politician's reputation as an astute master of diplomacy who combined vision with the precepts of Realpolitik. Having thrived in circumstances of turmoil and war, Venizelos was able to prove his skills in time of peace.
