NA PRAHU MIERU. 2. ODDELENIE HLAVNÉHO ŠTÁBU V ROKU 1945
On the threshold of peace. The 2nd Department of the Headquarters in 1945
Languages of publication
In his study, the author analysed the as yet scarcely processed topic of the post-war renewal of one of the military intelligence units. The recovery conditions were complicated due to the specific historic reality following the end of the World War 2 and the consolidation of the spheres of influence of the victorious powers. The focus of the topic is incorporated into the gradually escalating fight for the political power in CSR. This has been negatively reflected in the process of building the military intelligence under the new conditions. The 2nd Department of the Headquarters (military intelligence) had the biggest problems. On the selected contemporary examples, the study is highlighting the broad range of issues in the recovery of the military intelligence and its functioning during early stages of the post-war CSR. A substantial part of the study is dedicated to the 2nd Department of the Headquarters, the focus of which in the period in question should have been similar as in the pre-Munich Republic. This means that it was focusing on obtaining, collecting and evaluating (analysing) the information important for state defence, unlike the military counterintelligence, which disposed of not only the intelligence service powers but also the powers of security authorities.
