40 years ago, the Soviets invaded Czechoslovakia

(1968) "For months preceding the invasion, the Czechoslovak Communist Party, led by Alexander Dubcek, had carried out a reform program aimed at eliminating the regime’s most repressive features and creating “socialism with a human face.”

It soon became known as the Prague Spring. And it quickly gathered momentum.

By August, Moscow’s patience had run out."
