This book explores the history of Czechoslovakia, a state neglected in British historiography, but which is vital for understanding Europe after 1918. The country twice lost its independence, firstly to Adolf Hitler's Germany and then to Joseph Stalin's USSR — events that sent shock waves through the continent. The fourteen chapters deal with four main subject areas: aspects of Czech national society, the Czechs' relationship with Slovaks and Germans, and the British dimension.
