New book on Greek Plastic Toy Soldiers from the 50's and 60's

Another book about toy soldiers is always welcome in my house, this one written by collector Markos Plytos covers the stories and products of the two main Greek toy soldier manufacturers, PAL and their better known rival Athena (AOHNA) who eventually took them (PAL) over.  ISBN 978-960-7661-91-3.  It has 235 pages, illustrated throughout in full colour, the author has done a lot of original research and shows that these two companies did a lot more than just the Hoplites and Evzones for which they are best known.
