Václavík, Robert ; Gebhart, Jan (advisor) ; Šedivý, Ivan (referee)
In the period of the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia, the Czech Union of Warriors (CUW) was an organisation collaborating with the occupational power. Te founder of the CUW, Otto Bláha, a retired colonel of gendarmerie, in 1940 promoted to general, tried to achieve the dissolution of military associations existing till then, attempting to form a unified organisation of war veterans. One of the pillars of the CUW was the Czech Union for Collaboration with Germans, in which Bláha was in charge of invervention activites with German authorities. The scond pillar of the rising CUW was the Union of Front Soldiers. Bláha took over the leadership in this union and from the occupational bodies acquired an approval to form a unifeid organisation under the managment of the newly forming CUW. In spite of all the endeavours of CUW, it never happened. The Articles of the CUW were approved of in 1914 and Bláha was appointed its head. The CUW was often in contact with the bodies of both the protectorate and occupational administrations and filed a number of proposals ofrt he integration of CUW int the public and political lives.
