The London diaries of the historian and diplomat Jan Opočenský represent an every-day written description of the period from June 1940 to December 1945. The diaries, in chronological order, give a unique picture of the development and political problems of the Czechoslovak political exile in Great Britain during the World War II. Interesting and often of a unique value are notes about various unfulfilled personal as well as political ambitions of the individual representatives of the Czechoslovak exile resistance.
