Everyone expected Germany to attack Greece through Bulgaria in January 1941
The British government was trying to tell what Greece would do in response to a German attack through Bulgaria. No one doubted that would be where the attack would come. Orders to the theater command in the Middle East were influenced by those anxieties. At a time when Bardia had just fallen and Tobruk was about to be attacked, there was less interest in pursuing success than there would have been under other circumstances.
