    What's the importance of the Pindus mountains towards it's country of Greece? The Pindus mountains are often called the "spine of Greece". They strongly affects the climate of the country and had offered some protection during History from invaders coming from the north.------------- The Pindus mountain range strongly affects the climate of the country by making the western side of it (areas prone to the south-westerlies) wetter on average than the areas lying to the east of it (lee side of the mountains). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greece#Geography The Pindus mountain range is located in northern Greece and southern Albania. What's the importance of the Pindus mountains towards it's country of Greece?It is roughly 160 km long, with a maximum elevation of 2637 m (Mount Smolikas). Because it runs along the border of Thessaly and Epirus, the Pindus range is often called the "spine of Greece". The mountain range stretches from near the Greek-Albanian borders in Northern Epirus, entering the Epirus periphery and Macedonia region in northern Greece down to the north of the Peloponnese. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pindus A mini-Campaign set in Greece, as the Axis forces pour out of Southern Yugoslavia and attempt to drive down the spine of Greece, seperating "W" Force (Commonwealth) in the East from the main Greek Army in the West.

    I don't find it so ironic and funny because , as the user above me said, the real names of these countries are Hellas (Ellas) and Turkiye. It's more strange the logic of the english people who gave these names to those countries. Because the english names have nothing to do with their real names.
