  •  The Czechs (3+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    The Czechs were put in an nearly hopeless position by Hitler's annexation of Austria. They were surrounded by Germany on three sides; Silesia and Saxony in the north, Bavaria in the west, and Austria in the south. And the Czech border regions, where the fortifications were, were in German-speaking Sudetenland.

    The Czech army was, as you say, capable, well-trained and modern, but its military position was untenable due to simple geography.
