He was to be recalled in 1928 and led Greece till his death which was followed by the Metaxas military takeover.
Voulgaris lays winning emphasis on the human dimension, even as Venizelos remains an enigmatic, if sympathetic figure, but there's probably a surfeit of unexplained historical detail for non-Greek specialists.
