Albrecht von Wallenstein

Some of the citizens know where the upper chamber of the Parliament of the Czech Republic, ie the Senate, sits, in the Wallenstein Palace. This beautiful Mannerist building was created by an important military leader and figure of the Thirty Years' War (lasted in the years 1618–1648) - Albrecht of Wallenstein.

Alois Vašátko

Another biography of one of the many brave fighters in the ranks of the RAF.

Deadly "Storm"

A literally bloody sun appeared in the east. A new day began on August 5, 1995. A mortar grenade, which landed on the observation post of Czech soldiers Tango 23, arrived like lightning from clear skies. Literally a whirlwind of shards immediately took its toll. Two Czech soldiers paid for it with their lives, three others were wounded. The line of Croatian fighters, as if nothing had happened at all, moved on. Operation " Storm " against troops of the Republika Srpska Krajina was drawing to a close. But let's look at this tragic moment in the history of the Army of the Czech Republic in more detail.

He was also Czech

Vašátko became a fighter ace twice: first in the Battle of France and again in the RAF. Among RAFVR Czechoslovak fighter aces, only Sqn Ldr Karel Kuttelwascher and Sgt Josef František shot down more aircraft than Vašátko. As a Wing Commander, Vašátko was one of the RAF's most senior Czechoslovak officers in front-line service. Vašátko had just been awarded his DFC on the day of his death. The Inspector-General of the Czechoslovak Air Force, Air Commodore Karel Janoušek, called Vašátko's death "the most cruel blow to our entire air force".

Kunovice menagerie

The story of the formation of a group of test pilots of the Czechoslovak aircraft manufacturer LET Kunovice.

Lt. Karel Vašátko

Biography of a member and later commander of the 2nd Company of the Czech Company. One of the bravest members of our legions in Russia.

Occupational killer without claim to question mark

Such is the title of the film ( almost one and a half hours long ) about Karel Vaš, a monster who died a few weeks ago. He lived to the glorious age of 96 years, in stark contrast to the fate of the many whose lives he shortened - in the role of informant, investigator, torturer, prosecutor, judge, de facto executioner, to the last breath of a rock-solid communist fanatic, without a doubt about the correctness of all his doing.
