Patriotic postcard produced by and for the Czech Legion in Russia during and shortly after WWI. The Legion had great success fighting for the Russians at Zborov, but after the Tsar was deposed and the Communists took over they were to be disarmed, a fate to which they took exception. So, like any of us would do, they decided to take over the Trans-Siberian railway and carved their own rolling iron empire out of the former Russia crown's east. The Allies weakly supported them (mostly with words) in fighting the Communists, but ultimately their revolution sputtered to a halt and they evacuated out of (mostly) Valdivostok. Slightly worn, bumped corners, good condition, as per scans. Amazing that in the midst of their fighting they had time to actually produce postcards -- I guess there was some significant downtime while rolling across Siberia.

Patriotic donation postcard for the Czech Legion in Italy during and shortly after WWI featuring artwork by the soldiers doing the actual fighting. A bit worn, as per scans. Many ex-pat Czechs as well as those captured as POW's were recruited to fight against the Central Powers in WWI at great risk to themselves -- besides being killed in battle, if they were captured they were generally executed, since, as subjects of the Austrian crown they were regarded as traitors.
