Czechoslovak military diplomats after the end of the World War 2
Languages of publication
The author of the scientific study chose the as yet sparsely processed issue of the post-war renewal of one of the specific units of military reporting service. This unit performed several important tasks not only in terms of reporting service. The author of the study has retrieved this spectrum successfully. He evaluates not only the priority tasks but also points out to the additional spectrum of partial tasks of the Czechoslovak military diplomats. The author managed to capture the complexity of domestic relations as well as the situation inside the military reporting service Headquarters. The focus of the topic is set in the period immediately after the end of the World War 2 and the gradually escalating fight for the political power in Czechoslovakia. This has reflected negatively not only in the process of building the military reporting service under the new conditions but in its other units as well. The 2nd Department of the Headquarters (military intelligence) had the greatest problems. These issues were reflected in the construction of the network of the Military Diplomat Offices – Attachés. The negative consequences also reflected in the deployment of missions and in operations of the exposed military officers. The author used predominantly the archival sources of the Security Services Archive (ABS) and its as yet unprocessed fund. The author has verified the documents and confronted them with the achieved level of scientific knowledge. The period in focus is constantly in attention of the lay and professional public. In particular, the military reporting community keeps experiencing the impacts of the insufficient processing of its history.
