Summary May 20, 1956, Cyprus. British troops are closing in on a band of terrorists hiding out in the Troodos Mountains. The terrorists they are up against bombed and shot their way across Cyprus for the last 12 months. No one has been spared -- off-duty soldiers, police officers, civilians, even women and old men have been cut down in cold blood, as the terrorist pursue their violent campaign. Known as EOKA or the National Organization of Cypriot Fighters, the group's avowed intention is to drive the British out of Cyprus, introduce self-government, and join forces with Greece. This goal is commonly known as Enosis, the Greek word for union. The EOKA's leader is George Grivas, formerly a high ranking Greek army officer
