Summary/Abstract: After World War II, in 1945, the Military Legal Review — a law journal known and valued before 1939 — was reactivated. The reactivated quarterly was one of the many tools which the communist regime used for ideological struggle. The journal promoted a new, revolutionary approach to the theory of law and the practice of jurisprudence. The content of the publications in the Military Legal Review was addressed not only to military lawyers, but also to military commanders and representatives of the communist political apparatus. The journal propagated the “proper” worldview in the readers, one that was consistent with the party line.
