Languages of publication
This article provides a political biography of Czech National Socialist politician and journalist, Josef (Jóža) David (1884–1968), who began his political career in regional organisations of the National Social Party, before going on to figure in the Czechoslovak Legion in Russia, in the Chamber of Deputies and the legionary organisations of interwar Czechoslovakia, and taking part in major actions of exile resistance during the Second World War, reaching the position of President of the Interim and Constituent National Assemblies of Czechoslovakia between 1945 and 1948. The biography makes use of his extensive, previously unpublished memoirs, which represent a significant source not just for his biography, but also for Czech (and Czechoslovak) political history of the first half of the 20th century.
