Monument dedicated to two Moravian engineers that died while demining the area in 1946 (mines were often booby-trapped), Starina water reservoir, Slovakia #wwii #secondworldwar #mines #landmines #engineers #military #monument #starina #snina #stakcin #slovakia #slovensko #moravia #morava
The Corner of Death is presented to you in honor of the 100th anniversary of the founding of Czechoslovakia (28th October 1918). The book is based on true events with an extensive non-fiction background aimed at military history of the Second World War and the role Czechoslovakia played in it. The main story line evolves around a strong Slovak female character that goes through fighting on the Eastern Front to ultimately reunite with her love and fight the enemy at home. The Corner of Death explains in detail the birth of and hardships Czechoslovakia had to go through throughout its existence with a deeper focus on the Second World War and the aftermath that followed. A significant part of the book is dedicated to war events in Slovakia and its Liptov region.

This book is definitely suitable for “war geeks”, but also to the wider public that is interested in the Second World War, the Eastern Front and the role of smaller countries that performed great deeds to defeat the common enemy. It will be especially interesting for Brits, French, Germans, Poles, Russians, Czechs, Slovaks and Americans, because the book goes deeper in telling stories of events connected with these nations. The Corner of Death is suitable for children, but it does not idealize war and it shows it as it really was… a horrible part of human history. This book is strongly antifascist and anticommunist, it shows what war heroes did and how they were treated after the war, which will be a shocker for the reader.
