If the historical conclusion is always disputed, what is never disputed is that history is a "practical teacher". *

Karaiskakis: He led naughty troops always facing the problem of equipment and salaries of his soldiers. He always had to assert his authority on the field with the example of personal bravery and courage.

And this, to force their men to obey, introducing the "shadow of discipline" into the disorder of the camp, as opposed to the commanders of organized regular troops, who take care of their strategic and sole duties.

It is questionable how he managed to obtain and maintain the position of general within such a fluid field of action.

The nun's son can be considered the "most genuine product of the Revolution".

He belongs to the thieves and boatmen of the previous era and joins the fight with the ultimate goal of taking the small boat of Agrafa.

His manners were brutal and his obscenity proverbial. In the early years of the uprising he could not comprehend the moral dimension of the struggle for national liberation. Gradually, however, in the massacre, the view is changed and "rises above the common measure".

Since 1825 his struggle for the dissolution of the Siege of Messolonghi and his action against Mehmet Resit Pasha (Kiutahi) show that he has suffered the "good alteration" and his successes justify what he said about himself.

The historian Dionysios Kokkinos rescues his dialogue with Zaimis in the summer of 1826 in Nafplio:

"Karaiskaki, you have not done as much as you owed to your homeland."

"I do not deny it. When I want I become an angel. And when I want I become a devil. From now on I intend to become an angel ".
