Czechoslovaks and the First World War

Regular readers of NightHawk will know that I was in Prague for Easter. During my visit, I viewed a photographic exhibition in Prague Castle of Czechoslovak soldiers in the First World War. Now here’s a quiz question: on whose side did Czechoslovaks fight in the Great War?
In a way, it’s a trick question because they fought on both sides. Many fought with the forces of the Austro-Hungarian Empire (of which the Czech and Slovak lands were then a part) on the southern (Italian) and eastern (Galicia) fronts, but others fought for the Entente powers in what became known as legions in Russia and France [see here].
