Historická sekce našeho Sdružení se nicméně přiklání jako k věrohodnému prameni k tomu, co napsal ve své knize Munich: Before and After v r. 1939 Hubert Ripka (str. 136–8):
The efficiency of the Czechoslovak mobilisation was, of course, somewhat disagreeable for Germany, whose propaganda therefore immediately disseminatednewsof disorders and of the opposition of the Czechoslovak people to their military obligations. The German official news agency, the D.N.B. (Deutsches Nachrichten Büro) stated that railway wagons carrying Czechoslovak reservists were covered with inscriptions such asAway with Beneš and Syrový,We want work and bread,We do not want to be cannon-fodder.The same propaganda agency announced that the majority of Sudeten Germans did not obey their mobilisation orders. In actual fact, however, although Herr Henlein announced by radio from Germany that those Sudeten Germans who obeyed their mobilisation orders would be committing an act of high treason against the German nation, even this threatening announcement had little effect on the Sudeten-German people. Apart from a few isolated exceptions, the Sudeten Germans obeyed unhesitatingly their mobilisation orders. […] It is unfortunate, however, that this campaign of lying, accompanied by much threatening bluff, made an impression on the countries of Western Europe. I would nevertheless emphasise that, though this was its main objective, it made no real impression at the time on the Sudeten Germans, the vast majority of whom remained loyal to their duty as Czechoslovak citizens.
