|3rd Greek Mountain Brigade|
|Allegiance||Kingdom of Greece|
|Engagements||Battle of Rimini
|Commander||Col. Thrasyvoulos Tsakalotos|
The 3rd Greek Mountain Brigade (Greek: ΙΙΙ Ελληνική Ορεινή Ταξιαρχία, ΙΙΙ Ε.Ο.Τ.) was a unit of mountain infantry formed by the Greek government in exile in Egypt during World War II. It was formed from politically reliable right-wing and pro-royalist personnel following a pro-EAM mutiny among the Greek armed forces in Egypt in April 1944. Commanded by Colonel Thrasyvoulos Tsakalotos, it fought in the Battle of Rimini in Italy (under I Canadian Corps), where it earned the honorific title "Rimini Brigade" ("Ταξιαρχία Ρίμινι") and against EAM's Greek People's Liberation Army in the Dekemvriana events in Athens.
