The Czech Legion

The Czech Legion

Get ready for one of the wildest stories you never heard…

Midst the chaos of World War One and the Russian Revolution, 70,000 Czech and Slovak P.O.Ws switched sides. They became The Czechoslovak Legion – an Allied army fighting for a country of their own – Czechoslovakia. They captured half the Trans-Siberian Railway, half the Czar’s gold, and the heart of a new nation.

…And it’s all true.

Here’s the Wikipedia page, if you wanna check that out. And here’s a version of the Czech Legion history that’s less confusing than wiki’s.
