This material deals with one of the accompanying phenomena of the post-war CS Army Command Corps staffing, which in the context of power struggle between the civilian and Communist forces underwent heavy politicization. In the case of the Army, confrontation was reflected in the fight for the form, character and political orientation of its senior command corps, with obvious gradual restriction of the influence of the commanders in favour of political entities and their nominees. In particular, this concerned the group of officers and generals holding the highest positions in the hierarchy of the Army organism. This process was closely reflected even at the nationality level of its composition, where the "Slovak issue" phenomenon in the renewed CS Army became even more pronounced. The submitted document vividly proves that the selection of the senior commander cadre of the strongest armed unit could not escape the attention of any of the political party leaders.
