Brigadier General Vladimir Prikryl

Biography of a member of the Czechoslovak legions in Russia and the commander of the 2nd Parachute Brigade. A man who, like many others, was imprisoned after 1948 instead of being rewarded for his work in the Czechoslovak foreign resistance.

Father Palec

The founder of the Czechoslovak airborne army gen. Karel Paleček tried to ensure that his units were destined primarily for special operations.

Gourmet in the first line

Vladimír Přikryl was not one of the youngest officers of our foreign army at the time of the outbreak of World War II - he was already 44 years old. In addition, his health gradually deteriorated. However, the dramatic moments he went through not only during the turmoil of war could be envied by many of his much younger colleagues. Especially after he had voluntarily transferred to the Eastern Front.

Josef Pekař and evaluation of the Hussites

Josef Pekař was born as a peasant son in 1870 in Malý Rohozec near Turnov. He was one of the most important historians at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, and we rank him among Goll's disciples. In his historical works, he always tried to capture time and depict the environment of that time. He took various factors into account. The economic situation, science, customs at the time, morals, speech and religion. His most important work was the four-volume work "Žižka and His Time", published in 1927-1933. The Hussite period is one of Pekař's most watched. Why?
