Your Stats are WRONG.
Over 1.7 million Yugoslavians and .5 Million Greeks died in the war. So not ...."more than any other nation" as you claim.
And what did Greece do with that marvelous victory over the Germans?....They killed many thousands of their own civilians just afew years later, in the own civil war. Those who were born and raised in Greece. Those who fought the Germans together with Greece. Those unfortunate enough to be of the Macedonian minority.
Even today 50 years later Greece denies entry, let alone compensation or pension of any kind, to the CHILDREN WHO THEY EXPELLED during that conflict. Yes, 28,0000 innocent Child refugees that greece does not allow back into it's country even today. They were Born in Greece! And once again, they were unfortunate enough to be of Macedonian minority.
As a comparison to this barbaric behavour of the Greek Government towards it's own people, the Republic of Macedonia, is currently negotiating pensions to it's civil war insurgents, only 8 years after the conflict. You would never see any such a thing in that great democracy, you call G R E E C E !!!
The Yudoslavs killed each other. The Greeks waiting till after WW2 to kill each other.
