Reader feedback: Slovaks should be proud of national uprising

Re: US WWII veterans with Slovak roots come close to ancestral homeland, By Dave Sutor, Sept. 8-14, Vol 9, No 34

Not enough has been written in the West about the Slovak National Uprising, or the American OSS involvement. For those of you who are interested; read "World War 2: OSS Tragedy In Slovakia" by Jim Downs. You will read about Slovak heroes, and why the Slovak people have much to be proud of concerning World War II.
