About the project
This project aims on documenting the role and history of those Americans of Czech and Slovak origins, who participated in the World War II, either on the homefront or in action all round the globe.
Being American citizens, they have often experienced the unusual destiny of liberating the homeland of their parents or forfathers, often still speaking the same language as the people of Czechoslovakia themselves.
But there were others, too, who have fougt in Pacific, in Asia or Africa, in Air Force as well as in the Navy.
They still remembered their Czech heritage, but also became, gradually, more and more the true Americans, shaped and hardened by the war.
