British Military Officers in Teschen, 1919

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticle

Abstract

This article examines the experiences of Britain’s military representatives in the former Habsburg Duchy of Teschen during the sometimes violent turbulence of 1919. It explores the background and selection of these men, their interactions with local politics and society, and the perceptions they formed. Evidence is drawn primarily from their official reports, family letters, and a book written soon afterwards. As external witnesses, their testimony offers a fresh perspective on ethnic conflict in the duchy and Allied attempts to broker a settlement.
