About the Project
Bellum.cz – famous battles in Czech history
The web site Bellum.cz was created in years 2011 to 2012. The project’s aim is to present the topics of Czech military history in an easy and understandable form to as many readers as possible. The collection of the battles and military campaigns consist of such events which either took place on the Czech area or played a key role for Czech or European history.
The content of the individual chapters is divided into several logical parts which should make it easier for the readers to easily direct their attention in the text and to easily understand the historical-political links which led to a military clash. As a part of each chapter there is also a clearly arranged table showing some statistic figures and information on the belligerents and a map approximately showing the location where the military clash took place.
Should you have any questions or comments concerning the web site Bellum.cz, please send an email to the address email@example.com.
