Languages of publication
Since its early days, the independent Slovak State originating in March 1939 had to come across a number of difficulties and challenges. Apart from the uncertain position in the Central European area and the threat of Hungarian territorial expansion, another issue was the position of national minorities living in the territory of the young country after 14 March. According to the registry from 1938, almost 400 thousand people located in the territory of the Republic claimed to other than the Slovak nationality, and the question was, how will the Republic deal with them. This article focuses on the fate of the national minorities among the Slovak troops, monitoring their numerical development between March 1939 and June 1941 and the conditions, under which they served in the Army.
