  • Humor and satire in war prose

    Why did I choose humor in war prose as the topic of my work? I have been interested in the history of wars since childhood, especially in World War II. At first I looked at it only in terms of non-fiction, later I was also interested in fictionalized views, which can be very diverse. In Anglo-Saxon literature, for example, the reportage-based books by Cornelius Ryan, which masterfully combined non-fiction with fiction, Patrick Ryan's humorous view of How I Won the War, or Chris Ryan's immediate recollections; the almost chamber drama Christopher Lambert's Island of Fulakon, the adventurous and thrilling Dozen of filths by EM Nathanson, Churchill's factually valuable World War II, Clavell's gloomy drama The Rat King, etc. Humor in war prose is specific, with Patrick Ryan, Spike Milligan and Joseph Heller becoming not only in this regard really concepts.

  • Humor and satire in war prose

    Introduction At first glance, the terms humor and war are incompatible. However, only at first glance, because every war causes a number of absurd situations, which even the participant must laugh at - either as a direct and unwanted reaction to the situation, or as a way to relax. And it is literature that will allow the person in question to look at other people - readers of the problem from a different point of view than we are used to. After all, there is also the so-called black humor, which combines elements of tragedy and comedy.

  • Ladislav Potocký - Foreign Legion through my eyes

    Recently, a colleague from Active Reserves lent me a book that already fascinated me with its title. When I asked him how he came to her, he replied that it had been written by a friend of his who was in the legion. Although the reader does not learn anything about Kolwezi-type actions in the book, he is allowed to look at the ordinary life of a legionnaire from his perspective. And whoever has undergone at least basic training in the Czech Army, will find that even the legion is just an army with all the flies. And here are a few snippets ...

  • Zarzecze Labor Camp near Nis in the system of Jewish forced labor camps

    While we know quite a lot about the existence of Nazi concentration camps during World War II, labor camps that did not get along well with concentration camps (or were at the beginning) are still a little-published topic. One of those who sheds light on this topic is Józef Marszalek, whose paper with the above title was presented at a scientific conference in Ostrava in 1994 and published in an abbreviated title "Nisko 1939–44".

  • War in Korea 1950-1953

    The military conflict that took place in Korea in 1950-53 was the first major clash between the totalitarian and democratic regimes after World War II. Although the war in Indochina has been going on ( or rather continued ) since 1945, the local population, albeit under communist leadership, fought against the French colonialists looting the country.

  • War in Korea 1950-1953

    The US Army was the strongest army in World War II and maintained this position ( at least on paper ) after the war. However, the actual state of the US Armed Forces was, to put it mildly, unsatisfactory. In 1950, the ground forces had only 10 divisions and 11 separate regiments, of which one infantry division, two infantry regiments and police units in the strength of the division were located in Europe.

  • Armament and armor of dragoons within the Moravian Land Defense in the second half of the 17th century

    The topic of weapons and armor is usually on the fringes of the historian's attention, however, his interest should not only be documents of a paper nature, but also material documents. And it is the weapons that testify to the mastery of our ancestors, just like paintings - they are often works of art. And this mastery is reflected not only in the beautifully decorated representative weapons, but also in the mass production of military weapons - just such weapons wrote history ...

  • Armament and armor of dragoons within the Moravian Land Defense in the second half of the 17th century

    The history of the military is undoubtedly one of the most interesting chapters in history. I will not be far from the truth if I dare say that wars have always been one of the main factors influencing development. Ancient historians have already placed great emphasis on the history of wars, and this is no different today.

  • Armament and armor of dragoons within the Moravian Land Defense in the second half of the 17th century

    Otto's educational dictionary interprets the slogan Dragoons as follows: “A special kind of cavalry originally, which used long guns, even bayonets, and drums, and also had grenadier companies. Cavalry grenadiers later arose from these. The first traces of dragoons can already be found in the conquerors of America, of whom Pizarro the Younger began to use them for the first time, as he often mounted fast marches for each rider of his army on one infantry horse. Newer dragoons took the origin from spanish and french arkebusier and the name is said to be from here, that in France their banners depicted dragons, although, after all, the name is interpreted differently. In the second half of the XVIII. century, however, they lost their destiny to fight alternately as needed on horseback and on foot and became a kind of medium species between light and heavy riding."

  • Armament and armor of dragoons within the Moravian Land Defense in the second half of the 17th century

    Otto's encyclopedia defines the (country) defense in these words: "The people selected from the citizenry, and intended to defend the homeland and because the smaller more local circuit, threatened by the enemy. This was especially true from the earliest times until the end of the Middle Ages, until the formation of permanent troops, before which event public or state defense ( in Germany Heerbann, Aufgebot ) used to be the only force of any state ...

  • Armament and armor of dragoons within the Moravian Land Defense in the second half of the 17th century

    The firearm of the dragoons of Moravian land cash was a musket. However, this seemingly primitive weapon required strict, complex and important training for precise movements. Some manuals list up to 143 commands. But why was the treatment so complicated? The musketeer was literally lined with gunpowder, which was in the gauges on the bandalier and in the dustbin, so when handling the still burning cigar, there was a constant danger of its initiation. Moreover, we cannot have great illusions about the intelligence of a farmer or peasant recruited into the army, who would inadvertently harm himself and his surroundings rather than the enemy, so hard training with a number of commands was appropriate. With the gradual professionalization of armies later, there is a significant reduction in these commands.

  • Armament and armor of dragoons within the Moravian Land Defense in the second half of the 17th century

    If we assess the armament and especially the armor of dragoons of Moravian land defense in the second half of the 17th century according to the collection in the Chropyně chateau, we must state that some of it goes beyond the customs of that time.
