Czechoslovakia: Anvil of the Cold War

By John O. Crane; Sylvia E. Crane | Go to book overview

commanding officer averred "that the American army would be out by December 1st." The Czechoslovaks were told that the Russians had given them permission to arrest Russian stragglers in the country after the first week of December.24 Owing to the inability of the government to provide sufficient transportation, the Red Army was forced to abandon a large quantity of stores with a "sufficient number of troops to guard and maintain them."25

The British ambassador was also closely monitoring the reorganization of the Czechoslovak Army for omens of the political drift. The abysmal news for Whitehall was that "it looks as if the Second Intelligence Bureau... might now be entirely controlled by the Russian Military Intelligence" with its name changed to OBZ. The good news was that Gen. Heliodor Pika, "formerly Chief of Military Mission in Russia," who "sympathizes with Britain," had been appointed deputy chief of staff. Another item of good news was that Air Marshal Janoušek, "a sincere friend of ours," was made deputy chief of air staff. General Zeman, who had been second in command of the British-trained Armoured Brigade Group, was now commander of the tank corps. Nichols firmly believed that Beneš "will eventually do what he can to see that military and air officers conversant with our ways do come to the fore."26
