Z nepřátelské do „naší” uniformy. Vojáci wehrmachtu ze Slánska jako dobrovolníci československé zahraniční armády
Maršálek, Zdenko
The study deals with the fate of German Wehrmacht soldiers, who volunteered from the captivity for the Czechoslovak Army-in-exile during the Second World War. The fact that at the end of the war, every third soldier of the Czechoslovak units formed alongside the Allies in Great Britain was a former German soldier, did not respond to the propaganda-shaped image of the resistance in exile, and was therefore marginalised. Colour fates of the men in this group is documented by an example of four soldiers born in the then Slaný district between 1909–1921.

Národnostní složení československých vojenských jednotek v zahraničí v letech 1939-1945 "Czech", or "Czechoslovak" Army? The ethnic and nationality composition of the Czechoslovak military units-in-exile in 1939-1945 tutor: prof. PhDr. Jan Kuklík, CSc. (†) PhDr. Jan Gebhart, DrSc. 2014 ABSTRACT General background One of the most important phenomena, which is important especially in current and future Europe, is the problem of the personal self-identification of individuals in the multinational and multicultural environment of higher (e.g., political) units, in particular national self- identification. For research about the problems connected with this phenomenon, the sample of the Czechoslovak units-in-exile during the World War II is an almost ideal historical model. The Czechoslovak units were, by far, the most diverse armed forces among the all exile-armies; yet this issue has not attracted the attention it deserves, neither in terms of different nationalities, nor from the perspective of ethnic issues in the units as a whole.
