This article is in serious need of bias cleanup, and it's full of inaccuracies too. It's funny enough that the picture with Freikorps members aiming a rifle is dubbed "Teroristická akce sudetoněmeckého Freikorpsu.jpg" in czech. Just imagine the impact if the polish rebel fighters in the Warszaw uprising would be dubbed as "Terrorists" in a wikipedia article by a german-speaking editor.

Wikipedia once again shows that it has been thoroughly absorbed by leftist elements who are not interested in real display of history but one-sided germanophobic political propaganda instead! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:30, 8 August 2013 (UTC)

Concur. It reads like WW2 Russian propaganda. (talk) 15:18, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Known anybody how many people serving in Sudetendeutches Freikorps ? Geobels propaganda says over 50 000. But it is propaganda.

It is not clear - it was not regular organisation, more a partisans blend within population. Useful number would be number of people trained for the warfare in Germany. Pavel Vozenilek 02:55, 21 April 2006 (UTC)

Why "Czech German"--The Czechs were not the only people living there. I suggest Bohemian German. 20:32, 4 February 2007 (UTC)Thomas

"Some sources"[edit]

Adding "According to some sources" may be a form of weaseling. Are there sources which dispute this figure? I also note that the German wikipedia version of this article [1], which is a featured article over there, does not say "some sources" but simply "Insgesamt führten SFK-Trupps mehr als 200 Terroraktionen durch, töteten dabei über 100 Menschen und entführten etwa 2.000 Opfer ins Deutsche Reich."

I can't see a dispute in the sources but let's give others a few day's to have a say before removing it. Rsloch (talk) 12:10, 30 June 2013 (UTC)
I have removed the text in question. If anyone believes that there is a dispute over the figures could they please include references in any change. Rsloch (talk) 08:44, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
