Benes was Secretary of the Czechoslovak National Council in Paris and Minister of the Interior and of Foreign Affairs in the Provisional Czechoslovak government from 1916-1918. He was the 2nd & 4th President of Czechoslovakia, as well as leading the Czechoslovakian government-in-exile from 1939 to 1945.;

"If Europe to-day groans under the German-Austro-Magyar brutality, it must not be forgotten that the Czecho-Slovak nation has suffered under it for twelve hundred years" (page 3);

As the book was published in London and intended primarily for English readers, a chapter was written on the relations of England and Bohemia.;
