The Greco-Turkish War has been called the “Liberation” or “Independence” war for years. I have written many times about this issue and expressed how wrong and objectionable it is, and instead I have stated that it is appropriate to call it “National Struggle”.
There have been some good developments in this regard. For example, the concept of “National Struggle” began to be used more frequently instead of the “War of Independence”, which has been used for 90 years. Because it was an ugly expression for Turks trying to get rid of a small state like Greece.
