Patrick Leigh Fermor - his final views on the Balkans!

There is more honesty about the highs of Paddy's love life and the lows of his depressions, and there is less restraint about his prejudices said his biographer Artemis Cooper quoting Fermor's final words on the Balkans -

Turks are sadistic ruffians; Bulgar's are mean-minded crooks; the Greeks, however, are heroic and romantic rustics.
