    During the time, the national historiographies created the individual „national stories“ of World War II and their own resistance-in-exile, strongly emphasizing national aspects and the needs of national propaganda. The author recommends focusing further research on the importance of the exile armies from wider perspectives, to attempt to find the answer to the question of their real military value for the Allies and to free from the more or less propaganda schemes and myths, which, in many aspects, persist even today. The combat value of the armies-in-exile was minor comparing the huge armies of the Great Powers, important contribution on the strategic level however represented the sources of raw materials from the Dutch and Belgian colonies, as well as the large Norwegian and Dutch merchant fleets. Real military values also include cooperation on other technical and armament projects and the employment of the skills of the constructors, managers and other highly qualified experts (for example, cryptographs). Finding the optimal way, how the small states could be a valuable ally for the Great Powers, is indeed an issue today, as well.
