      What may have the best information for some of you is listed last. As
      none of Slovakia is far from one of the borders, it is worth paying
      attention to our neighbors. Thus:

      Here are some sources with Polish Legion, 'Ukrainian' Legion and other
      parts of Galician history around WWI. There are many postcards from
      the period as well, which can be used to view some of the standards of
      living and fighting at the time, as well as the uniforms supplied to
      Poles fighting against the Russians.

      Ukrainian Legion

      Then a work on the Austo-Hungarian Army that probably presents more
      detail than most of us are aware of:

      Introductory summary of contents

      Who would immediately think that a humble postage stamp can reflect so
      much history? In reality, they demonstrate the authority and ability
      to deliver mail, clearly demonstrating who really held power in times
      of turmoil and changing battle fronts.

      Enjoy.
