Abstract: The fact that Pilsen was liberated by the American army affected the lives of the inhabitants of the West Bohemia considerably. The relations of the Czechoslovak civilian population with the U.S. soldiers were generally good. Both nationalities organized various cultural events and participated on the restoration of the war-damaged city. This progress is depicted on the pages of contemporary Czechoslovak and American press, which informed about the important events of the stay of the American army in Pilsen. The other topics of the article are especially the question of the Škoda Works, which was visited several times by the Allied authorities, and the stance of American military leadership toward Pilsen and Czechoslovakia.
