Plate made in Czechoslovakia. The text on the plate reads:”Warsaw Pact”, and beneath that:”Shield Of Socialism”, and at the bottom:”Czechoslovak People’s Army”. The Warsaw Pact was a military alliance of communist countries that existed between 1955 and 1991. It was established as a counterpart to NATO at the suggestion of Soviet party leader Nikita Khrushchev.
The treaty was signed on 14 May 1955 in the Polish capital, Warsaw, in response to NATO by the Soviet Union, Albania, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Poland and Czechoslovakia. The DDR was added in 1956. Albania left the Warsaw pact in 1968. Yugoslavia was left out. The members of the pact promised to defend each other if one or more members were attacked.
