Czechoslovakia is notable for having produced some very interesting postage stamps over the years and for having been on the losing end of the Munich Agreement just prior to World War II. The Skoda Works a large armaments factory, was located there.

The Sudetenland was a mountainous region in northwestern Czechoslovakia that contained a majority of German-speakers.
