Seton-Watson, R. W.  
Masaryk in England
Publisher: Cambridge at the University Press, 1943 Cambridge, England.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall "The preparation of this volume was undertaken in the summer of 1938, at the request of friends in Prague. It was to have appeared in Czech only, in the idea that anything relating to the great President's career would be of interest to his compatriots, and the many details of his two years' activity in England still remain unknown: an American edition was also planned. The downfall of Czechoslovak independence, following upon the shameful Pact of Munich, rendered publication impossible. But today the situation has changed beyond recognition. A Czechoslovak Government, under President Benes himself, has been set up in England and officially recognized as the ally of the British Government, the remnants of their army are training in our midst, and Czech airmen are adding their quota to the splendid achievements of the R.A.F. The Czechs are no longer 'a people of whom we know nothing', and in many quarters there is the keenest sympathy and interest in their cause. Hence it is but fitting that attention should be drawn to the intimate connection of Masaryk, the founde3r of their modern liberties, with our own country at the height of the Great War - a connection prepared by long study and natural affinities no less than by the political exigencies of the moment.." Seton-Watson looks at Masaryk and Czechoslovakia in the years immediately preceding and during World War II. There is also a detailed discussion of the proposal for an independent Bohemia following the war. x + 206 pages with index. Book is in GOOD condition. No dust jacket.
