Subject: [h-sig] Hungarian-Czech war
: The following came in >from a new-found Baum cousin in the US, writing
: about his father. The father was born 1898 in in Vidrany (near Medzilaborce) and
: went to the US in 1922, having always lived in the town of his birth.
: "He was conscripted into the Hungarian army during a border
: war with Czechosolvakia---served a short period of time and, shortly
: afterward, came to the United States..."
: Does anyone know what war he is talking about? In WWI, the Czechs and the
: Hungarians were on the same side. And in any case, no one ever called WWI "a
: border war." Did they fight after WWI? If so, why would someone >from near
: Medzilaborce been on the Hungarian side?
