Dreams of a Great Small Nation

The Mutinous Army that Threatened a Revolution, Destroyed an Empire, Founded a Republic, and Remade the Map of Europe

U.S. Embassies Invite a Visit to Mark 100 Years Since Events in the Book

The U.S. embassies in Prague (Czech Republic) and Bratislava (Slovak Republic) have invited me to speak in both countries in May 2018 about the epic achievements and wild misadventures of the Czecho-Slovak Legion, which -- together with the tireless (and perilous) efforts of exiles and emigres Tomas Masaryk, Edvard Benes, Milan Stefanik, and the support of the American immigrant communities in Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Chicago, Iowa, Nebraska, Texas, and other locales -- destroyed the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1918, liberating the Czech and Slovak peoples.  To help both countries celebrate the 100th anniversary of these events, I will speak at events in the Czech Republic May 20-23 (Prague and perhaps Brno and Pilsen) and again in the Slovak Republic May 23-27 (Bratislava and environs).  If you plan to be in the same places, perhaps you can attend one of the events.
