Long Way From Home

Issue Number: 5077

Writer and anarchist, Dominik Zatopek, had lofty ambitions for a free nation for Czechs and Slovaks. But in 1914, under the rule of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Czechs were unwillingly forced to fight in the First World War as part of the Triple Alliance.

But when Dominik is captured by the enemy, he is given the chance to join the Czech Legion and fight for a free Czechoslovakia. Soon Dominik’s role in The Great War would take him a long way from home.
