Cold War Czechoslovak Soldier
The Czechoslovak People's Army was the armed forces of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia and the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic from 1954 until 1989. From 1955 it was a member force of the Warsaw Pact.
The Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia occurred during 20–21 August 1968, when the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic was jointly invaded by four Warsaw Pact countries: the Soviet Union, the Polish People's Republic, the People's Republic of Bulgaria and the Hungarian People's Republic. The invasion stopped Alexander Dubček's Prague Spring liberalisation reforms and strengthened the authoritarian wing of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia. About 250,000 Warsaw Pact troops supported by thousands of tanks and hundreds of aircraft, participated in the overnight operation, which was code-named Operation Danube.
