Description - Fighting Communism from Afar by Francis D. Raska

The Council of Free Czechoslovakia was the first organized political exile group to emerge from behind the Iron Curtain and became a symbol of hope to many Czechoslovakians suffering under the yoke of Communism. This volume analyzes the activities of this organization from a number of perspectives, exploring the differences of opinion that hampered the organization's effectiveness (Czech and Slovak politicians split the party along political lines, though the party remained united on issues relating to the care of refugees and the transfer of the Sudetan German minority). The volume also scrutinizes the Council's participation in the European Movement and the Assembly of Captive European Nations, while highlighting its work to expose human rights violations committed by Communists.
