There were certainly a few Czechs who stayed in the Sudetenland after the annexation, received German citizenship and were later drafted into the German Army.Czech (or German, Hungarian, Pole) by origin, Germans by nationality. I think we can stay on this point .

Thank you. I didn't know for this book. It seems that Franz Weber was Sudeten German and not Czech. I would be in this case more interested in any memoires or diaries of any Czech or let's say Sudeten German who remained living in Czechoslovakia after May 1945. Especially any memoires from any of the Hultschin men would be wonderful. You don't know any, do you?Abouth memories, there is a book by Franz Weber (14.PzD)

That's too bad. Do you have any good books about Czechoslovakian 1st Light Division in France and her performance that you can suggest? There's Cajka's book about Czechoslovakian on the Western Front... Anything else?Thanks you like the article abouth Polish Airforces in 1939. I have to finish the article about 9.Armee in 1945, and than i maybe start the article abouth 1938 - What if. Nothing abouth France in 1940.
Please tell me more about this book. When did the author joined the Legion Etranger? After the fall of France 1940? Was he with it (13e DBLE) in Gabon, Dakar, Eritrea and Kamerun? I haven't heard for this book. I know or have heard for Karel Hora, Otto Janka and Otto Wagner's book, but not for this. Otto Wagner was a company or battalion commander in the French Foreign Legion at Bir-Hakeim.ut i have a book from Mr. Zdráhala - he escape form Bohmen-Mahren to France, served as Artilleryman in some czech formation )can´t remember the name from my head now) and ended the war in French liberty Forces near Bir Hakeim, were he was taken prisoner.
Do you have any other memoires of Czechs who escaped from CSR in 1938 and joined the Foreign Legion?
In the spring of 1944 (during 22-25th May 1944 to be more exact), the highest organs of the Third Reich decided to send eleven battalions of Czech Government troops (ca. 5,000 men) via Plzen-Mnichov-Innsbruck-Brenner-Verona to Italy for use as a guard service for railway lines, and for the protection of various civil and military facilities (power stations, waterworks, factories, munition stores etc.). By May 28th, 1944 the eleven battalions were in place in Italy and deployed as follows:Has anyone any information on the size of the Vládní vojsko in Italy?
* 2n, 3rd and 6th Battalion in Cremona
* 4th and 5th Battalion in Bologna
* 7th, 8th, 9th, 11th and 12th Battalion in the Torino area and
* 10th Battalion in Aosta
