    They aren't 'Nazi' troops, they are soldiers of the Deutsches Wehrmacht.

    They occupied Bohemia and Moravia (Czech Rep.) after the government of that nation offered the Soviet Union military bases on their territory, you also have to factor in the resultant chaos after Slovakia declared its independence and the land grab which Poland and Hungary engaged in after the Munich agreement of Sept. 1939.

    The Germans were justified in helping their kinsfolk in the Sudetenland who were treated terribly by the Czech authorities. You also have to bear in mind that Prague had been a German City for centuries and owed its cultural and architectural beauty to its Germanic element.

    The truth about these events is coming to light now because of the Internet and the genie can't be put back in the lamp.

    Unfortunately for now we have to put with the fact that Winston Churchill is touted as a 'Great' Briton, when in fact he instigated the genocidal bombing raids on civilians in Germany.
