Communism didn't cause WWII. Fascism, or Nazism at that time, did. Germany became Fascist and started taking over Europe. Mussolini then turned Italy Fascist to protect it. The only communist country really involved was the USSR and they were Allied. NB: Italy was Facist under Mussolini long before Hitler came to power in Germany.

Yes, I would say so. The Greek Civil War is regarded as the first of many Cold War conflicts, beginning in 1944 and in progress when the Cold War began in 1945. As it was a definite loss for Communism, Greece remained staunchly on the side of Democracy throughout the Cold War.
