About us

   We are group of people who share interest about Hungarian Royal Army during World War II. During the greatest conflict in World´s history, it were not just armies of Third Reich, SSSR, USA, or Great Britain, who fought bravely and fiercely. Many of other and smaller countries fought with same intensity, but thein efforts are forgotten nowadays. One of those forgotten armies is army of Hungarian Kingdom – Magyar Királyi Honvédség (translated as Royal Hungarian Army).
 
    After defeat of Central Powers and disintegration of Austria-Hungary empire our eastern neighbours found themselves in quite unenviable situation. Former Hungarin kingdom lost most of its pre-war territory, and also many inhabitants, even most of them were magyar origin. This state, confirmed by Treaty of Trianon signed in 1920, naturally aroused great opposition in the country. Treaty of Trianon even today means for  many Hungarians  the same humiliation as the Munich Agreement signed in 1938 means for Czechs. No wonder that regaining back the lost territories was one of the major goals of Hungarian foreign policy since the time after the treaty. Also the strategic situation of Hungarian Kingdom in prewar period was quite bad. Until spring 1939 the country was surrounded by hostile counties of so called „Little Entente“ alliance – Czechoslovakia, Romania and Yugoslavia  

  Czechoslovakia several times took an important part in a history of Hungary during years 1918-1945. First time it was right after the World War I ended when Czechoslovak army conquered and connected to the newly formed Czechoslovakia Upper Hungary (in Hungarian Felvidék). Also, in the time between the signing of Munich Agreement and formation of Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia Czechoslovakia became a first target of Hungarian aggression which main target was to regain the lost territories back to Hungarian hands. From our point of view it is also interesting, that Czech Lands became for many Hungarian soldiers the last stop before their way to captivity at the end of the WWII. Based on several lines of the text above it is obvious that our relations with Hungary were quite tense, but for our history also very significant. This is the reason why we believe, that forming a reenactment unit dedicated to Royal Hungarian Army in Czech Republic was a great idea and will allow organization of events to remind Hungarian activities in former Czechoslovakia and reenact little-known episodes of Czech history.
