 Eduard Benes
Benes became a journalist to earn a living and wrote numerous articles for a paper in Prague.  As WWI started, he began an effort to gain autonomy-if not independence-for the Czechs.  Meanwhile, Tomas Masaryk suggested union with the Slovaks as a solution to the Czechs' dilemma of being surrounded by the Germans.
Benes compelled France to give his country military and political aid, and so under French guidance, Benes founded the "Little Entente" whose purpose was to unify the spoilers of Hungary (Czechoslovakia, Rumania, Jugoslavia) against the Magyars.  Throughout the 1920s and into the 1930s, Benes exerted great influence in Central European affairs.
Benes is the author of twelve volumes on political and sociological subjects, almost universally recognized as authorities.
