The study enriches the current knowledge of the Slovak historiography on the functioning of the Slovak Army work units during the World War 2. In terms of heuristics, the author based his study mainly on the archival sources deposited in VHA Bratislava. From today's point of view, mapping the everyday life of the Work Force members is an interesting topic, in particular housing, catering, health care, cultural and sports activities of the Work Force members. Comparison of the quality of accommodation and catering between the "Aryans" and the Jews and Gypsies shows the great differences in quality between these two groups. There was no permanent improvement of the worker and employee conditions until the end of the Work Force existence. The Work Force members were performing their work under poor working conditions, without basic protective equipment. The Ministry of National Defence was not able to provide for suitable clothing in a long term. The crew were wearing worn-out clothes, button-less, often torn. Many of them had no shoes. They either fell apart or they simply exchanged them with civilians for tobacco, alcohol or food.
