The Czech Legion 1914-20 PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Czech Legion 1914-20 free pdf The Czech Legion was not just a single military unit, but a volunteer army that fielded up to 100,000 troops on the Allied side on all three main fronts of the war. Since only the defeat of Austro-Hungary and Germany offered any hope for Czech national independence, they were amongst the most motivated and steadfast of the Allied forces. After the Bolshevik Revolution, they fought their way across Russia, captured the Russian national gold reserves and used this as a bargaining chip to force the Bolsheviks to allow them to return home. Today the Legion is recognized as the founding fathers of Czech nationhood. This very colorful force of World War I has never before been detailed in English and is illustrated with an astonishing array of never-before-published photographs.
