You mentioned a book about the Czecho-Slovak Legion some time ago.
Does the book contain any information about the Sokol organization?

With the onset of World War I,
in 1915 the Sokols were officially disbanded. Many members were active
in persuading the Czechs to defect from the Austro-Hungarian army to the
Russian side. Sokol members also helped create the Czechoslovak Legions
and local patrols that kept order after the disintegration of Habsburg
authority, and during the creation of Czechoslovakia in October 1918.
They also fulfilled their title as the “Czech national army”, helping to
defend Slovakia against the invasion of Béla Kun and the Hungarians.
