From Prague After Munich: Diplomatic Papers 1938-1940
From Prague After Munich Diplomatic Papers 1938-1940 Author:George F. Kennan In August 1938 George F. Kennan was assigned as Secretary of Legation in Prague. At the beginning of his assignment, he wrote: "When I left Paris for Prague ... it was the day of the Munich Conference; we could see Daladier's special plane warming up on the apron as we left; and ours was, as it turned out, the last plane to leave Paris ... more »for Prague for another seven years. The following day I stood on the Vaclavske Namsti and watched people weep as the news of the disaster at Munich came in over the radio loudspeakers. Six months later I witnessed the entry of the Germans."
This book, composed of various diplomatic papers written by Mr. Kennan at the time, constitutes an eyewitness report of the years 1938-1940 in Prague, describing the initial impact of the Nazi occupation on the various parts of the former Czechoslovakia. George Kenna's assigned function at that time was political reporting, until March 1939 as Secretary of Legation, and then, after the Germans occupied the country, as a "foreign service officer" charged with the custody of the diplomatic premises.« less
