In 1914, the Austro-Hungarian Empire stretched as far as Ukraine, occupying the Ukrainian provinces of Bukovyna, Carpatho-Ukraine and Halychyna. At the outbreak of World War One Ukraine presented Austria with a ready-made army of volunteers. The new Ukrainian Legion asked only that they be formed solely of Ukrainians and that they be allowed to fight the Russians!
This publication describes and illustrates in detail the Ukraininan Legion’s distinctive Fieldpost cards.
