Considerations about introducing the “nationality key” in forming the command corps of the CS Army after the end of World War 2
Languages of publication
In the introduction of the edited document, the author points out to the fact that the so called “nationality key” in forming the CZ command corps after the end of World War 2. emerged from the so called National Personal Structure Model, determining the national proportions for staffing at all command and management levels. Since the state-forming nations were dominating the command corps of the Czechoslovak People’s Army, the nationality key referred exclusively to the Czech and Slovak element. Elaboration of the nationality key should have become an army-wide matter, with all the units of the Ministry of National Defence and General Staff engaged. This should have concerned all service categories and should have been applied to all areas of the army personal work, i.e. to recruitment into the command corps, appointing soldiers for ranks, their promotions and appointments. However, a lot of complications were encountered from the beginning. Particularly in the case of officers, the problem appeared to be most complicated. Their number and method of classification was determined strictly by the so called “systemization” of the service positions approved by the government still according to the regulations of the 24th June 1926. Moreover, the whole area was determined also by the insufficiently clarified bonds and competences of individual ministerial units. The personnel work with the command corps was fragmented.
