Some might argue that Czechs are not exactly a nation of warriors, and that the last time they really fought was at the notorious 17th century Battle of White Mountain, which they lost. But that of course couldn’t be further from the truth. Troops from Bohemia and Moravia took part in many wars, including the two greatest conflicts of the 20th century.

In our Sunday music show, we listen to some of the songs about these and other wars Czech soldiers took part in.
