Background: Greece achieved independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1829. During the second half of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century , it gradually added neighboring islands and territories , most with Greek-speaking populations. In World War II , Greece was first invaded by Italy (1940) and subsequently occupied by Germany (1941-44); fighting endured in a protracted civil war between supporters of the king and Communist rebels. Following the latter's defeat in 1949 , Greece joined NATO in 1952. A military dictatorship , which in 1967 suspended many political liberties and forced the king to flee the country , lasted seven years. The 1974 democratic elections and a referendum created a parliamentary republic and abolished the monarchy. In 1981 , Greece joined the EC (now the EU); it became the 12th member of the European Economic and Monetary Union in 2001.
