Languages of publication
In the contribution, the author deals with the question of functional assignment of General Staff Colonel Ferdinand Čatloš in the period of increased threat to the Republic and during the September mobilization in 1938. This issue was as yet unresolved or interpreted in a different way, practically since the first publication about his personality, in particular in the work of Václav Štefanský in 1998. Absence of the papers on the activity of the 2nd Army and their subordinate units – 8th Division Florian and the Border Area 37 as well as the mobilization-based (“double”) 8th Division Mánes, also lead the authors in the case of Ferdinand Čatloš to deal with partial data or (largely) with fragmental memories of F. Čatloš himself. Gradually, two different claims were published in principle. According to the first one, General Staff Colonel Čatloš was the Chief of Staff of the 8th Division Florian (HO-37) in the primary deployment and according to the second, he held the same function in the secondary Staff, 8th Division Mánes, composed for the mobilisation. Čatloš himself did not contribute to clarification of this contradiction, since in his memoirs, which are otherwise incredibly extensive, he only provides vague data on this subject.
