Martin David Brown: Dealing with Democrats. The British Foreign Office and the Czekoslovak Émigrés in Great Britain, 1939 to 1945

Mitteleuropa- Osteuropa. Oldenburger Beiträge zur Kultur und Geschichte Ostmitteleuropas. Bd. 7.
Herausgegeben von Michael Garleff, Hans Henning Hahn und Matthias Weber

The history of Anglo-Czechoslovak relations during the Seond World War has generated much controversy over the past sixty years. This book examines Britain’s relationship with the Czechoslovak émigrés based in London, led by Edvard Beneš, from the Foreign Occice’s perspective. Using a wide range of materials, the author provides a rigorously post-Cold War analysis of British decision-making and policy formation on the Czechoslovak question between 1938 and 1945. He givs detailed consideration to tripartite relations with the Polish Government in exile, the Soviet Union, and the anti-fascist Sudeten German refugees in London led by Wenzel Jaksch. He also examines the British Government’s attempts to promote resistence in Nazi-occupied Europa, as well as the gradual evolution of proposals to remove the Sudeten German minority forcibly from Czechoslovakia after the war.
