By spring 1917, General Sarrail's Allied Army of the Orient had been reinforced to 24 divisions,< BR>
6 French, 6 Serbian, 7 British, 1 Italian, 3 Greek & 2 Russian brigades. An offensive was planned for late April
but the initial attack failed with major losses and the offensive was called off on 21 May. The Venizelists and the Entente,
wishing to exert more pressure on Athens, occupied Thessaly, which had been evacuated by the royalists and
the Isthmus of Corinth, dividing the country. After an attempt to occupy Athens by force, that caused the reaction of
the local royalist forces and ended in an fiasco in December (see Noemvriana), the Allies established a naval blockade
around southern Greece which was still loyal to king Constantine, causing extreme hardship to the people in those areas.
Six months later in June, the Venizelists presented an ultimatum, resulting in the exile of the Greek king
(on 14 June, his son Alexander became king) and the reunification of the country under Venizelos.
The new government immediately declared war on the Central Powers and created a new Army.
