  Nikolaos Plastiras
Nikolaos Plastiras (Greek Νικόλαος Πλαστήρας)(November 4, 1883 - July 26, 1953) was a general of the Greek army.
Plastiras, persecuted during the Pangalos dictatorship, attempted to lead a coup in March 1933, after the anti-Venizelists won the elections, but facing universal reaction (even from Venizelos himself), he was forced to flee abroad.
Plastiras attempted to tread a middle path between the British, who were supporting the returned government-in-exile and the return of King George II, and the democratic-leftist guerilla of the EAM/ELAS.

Nikolaos Plastiras (1881-1953) was exactly such a man. An infantry volunteer at the age of 23, Plastiras came from central Greece, growing up in the town of Trikala.
Plastiras, an austere young man with piercing dark eyes set in a scripturally ascetic face, joined the Macedonian fray within months of reporting for duty at his hometown’s barracks of the 5th Infantry Regiment.
Plastiras correctly understood that maintaining morale among conscript men, who could only be compared to Roman legionnaires in their length of active combat service, required more than just what was contained in the rule book.

Plastiras, using various excuses, has rejected truly democratic proposals in the strangest way and has always managed, and is still managing, to work with reactionaries of the Right.
Moreover, Gen. Plastiras has always flirted with the Left, while demanding that this be done in secret, without the knowledge of the Right, which he said would be harmful.
Today, Gen. Plastiras cannot claim that he cannot work openly in the elections with the KKE, for there is no question of this.
