Languages of publication
The author's published contribution represents and interprets three archival documents regarding a rebellion of the reserve infantry battalion 71 in the occupied Kragujevac in 1918. In terms of composition, the contribution is divided in a broader introduction, the three documents and an overview of the used sources and literature. In the relatively extensive first part, the author handles critically several issues related to the state of research and knowledge of the said rebellion. In particular, he assesses critically the work by Marián Hronský (Rebellion of the Slovak Soldiers In Kragujevac), issued in 1988.Even if several critical observations are valid, it is also necessary to consider the period when the work in question originated as well as the fact that this is basically a book of popular science. The first part of the contribution exceeds the scope of editorial introduction to the three documents which are presented as Annexes 1, 2 and 3, handling a wider scope of the issue concerned, in particular the historiographical processing of the rebellion, stories and actions of individual actors of the rebellion, executions and the relationship of the historical event and politics, etc. In conclusion of the contribution, three documents related to the rebellion are published. This is firstly the transcription of the dateless report of the first lieutenant Erwin Deutsch on the events (1), transcription of the testimony of the sergeant Anton Jakubík from 1922 (2) and finally the report of the reserve battalion, Lt. Col. A. Marx of 3 June 1918 (3).
