On page 159 there is a glaring falsification of de Tott's memoirs. On that page and several other previous pages are deTott's memoirs about 1500 Macedonians whom he had employed for his building projects in Turkey, but on page 159 instead of the original text "indemnity for my people" which is related to the Macedonians, someone has changed (falsified) that text with "indemnity for the Greeks" in a stupidly feeble attempt to equate the Macedonians with "Greeks".
As "my people" and "the Greeks" take approximately the same textual space the falsifier has gotten his "chance" to insert "the Greeks" in place of the original "my people". :-))
