The opening text greatly oversimplifies the Munich crisis, and incorrectly states that Germany occupied the entire country of Czechoslovakia as a result. Germany never occupied all of Czechoslovakia, but only occupied the Czech lands of Bohemia-Moravia after having occupied the Sudetenland for approximately 7 months. Slovakia was allowed to retain nominal independence under a pro-fascist regime led by Slovak nationalist Jozef Tiso. The Czechoslovak government in exile placed great importance on showing that both Czechs and Slovaks rejected Nazism, which is why Josef Gabcik (played by Cillian Murphy) was made part of Operation Anthropoid.
