How it was with the Government Army in 1943 (A Probe into the History of the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia)
Languages of publication
The Government Army of the Protectorate Bohemia and Moravia was established in July 1939 and formally put under the control of the State President Emil Hácha. At the time of the Second World War and especially German-Soviet war so-called Czech activists repeatedly tried to send it to the front on the German side. The most important attempt was made in January 1943 by the Minister of Education and Popular Enlightenment Emanuel Moravec. This Czech quisling abused the bad state of health of Dr Hácha and changed President’s attempt at an amnesty into the offer of the Government Army. The protectorate government did not dissociate itself from the offer for the fear of Moravec and left the decision to Hácha. The State President in a conversation with German State Secretary K. H. Frank at the beginning of February accompanied the offer with a number of comments that invalidated it entirely. Frank consulted this matter with H. H. Lammers, the head of the office of the Chancellor of the Reich, and they decided not to submit the worthless offer to Hitler.
