Languages of publication
The author explores the relationship between politics and war through an analysis of the Czechoslovak Legions and the Civil War in Russia. Developments between the years 1917 and 1920, as well as subsequent events in Russia in the following decades up until today, serve as a classic example of the relationship between war and politics. In the years 1917 – 1922, the Russian nation, together with its neighbours, went through a very difficult period of the Civil War. The events in Russia in 1917 – 1920 partially affected the Czechoslovak Army Corps, which were stalled there after the Bolsheviks had concluded peace with the Central Powers at Brest-Litovsk. Earlier Marxist historiography in the former Soviet Union and in Czechoslovakia viewed these events from a class and partisan perspective, and, under the pressure from communist ideology and censorship, echoed the positions of the Bolshevik leaders, particularly of Vladimir Lenin. After 1990, an opportunity for new approaches and a more objective view on this stage of Russian and Slovak history opened up in Russia as well.
