Languages of publication
The third and final part of the study about the Military University (VVŠ) provides information about its course II., which took place in 1942/1944. The author points out to the changes in the educational process, caused by the increasing German influence and promotion of the German military doctrine. An important milestone in the University’s teaching process was the attendance of the learners of the “A” Department – General Staff of the Military University at the internships at German military schools and the three-month course of the General Staff at the Berlin Kriegsakademie. The study further points out to the major impact of the Slovak National Uprising on the Slovak military power, in particular the activity of the Military University, as well as the effort to renew the University’s activity by opening the VVŠ Course III. at the end of 1944, only intended for the learners of the “A” Department – General Staff of the Military University. However, due to the dissolution of the 1st Slovak Republic in spring of 1945, the course was not completed. The study also mentions the unrealistic preparations for the VVŠ Course IV., which did not get past the preparations stage.
