hardly even a footnote in history but the czechoslovak legion fighting a naval battle against the soviets (armored train included) in siberia is rather unexpected
>>
>>63942
It's not unexpected at all if you know the history of Czechoslovak Legion. But then again, the whole history of it is amazing and seemingly unreal.
>>
>>63973
i know about it, it's more the 'naval battle in siberia' part that is amusing

During the battle the Canadian and American Forces landed from opposite sides of the island and engaged each other thinking both sides were the Japanese. When the Japanese had previously evacuated the island.

>The Gamecock fishing fleet encountered the Russians at night during fog. They thought the warships were English and were delighted to watch their manoeuvring. The warships powerful searchlights were turned on. The fishermen "ceased their work, and laughed and revelled in the glare". One of the skippers, Captain Whelpton, described how "the faces of the Russian sailors could even be seen. I called all hands on deck to witness what I thought was going to be a brilliant spectacle". Suddenly the galley Funnel of the trawler Mino, was hit. "Good god!" He said, "This is not blank,lie down lads and look after yourself"

Three British fishermen died, and two Russians (a sailor and a priest) were also killed by friendly fire.

>The resentment directed from enlisted men toward older officers was exacerbated by generational gaps, as well as different perceptions of how the military should be conducted. Enforcement of military regulations, especially if done overzealously, led to troops' complaining and sometimes threats of physical violence directed toward officers

>Soldiers sometimes used non-lethal smoke and tear-gas grenades to warn superiors that they were in danger of being killed if they did not change their behavior. A few instances occurred—and many more were rumored—in which enlisted men collected "bounties" on particular officers or non-commissioned officers to reward soldiers for killing them.

That's not pretty unusual at all. Chinks have been duking it out with Middle Easterny People for quite some time.

Speaking of China: this one is weird
>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_of_the_Heavenly_Horses

Basically China vs. Dayuan. a City state founded by Alexander's veterans. Dayuan bred nice horses. China needed said nice horses for war against the Xiongnu. Offered to buy 10,000 of them and Dayuan said fuck no. CHinks sent an army and got them instead.

According to Ssu'ma Chen, the Han Commanders were impressed by "a certain Nobleman called Jinmi," who held a breach in the walls of Dayuan. They captured him but treated him with respect. They got their horses and Emperor Wu of Han launched one of his first campaigns in the Han-Xiongnu war. Also repaired their relations with the Greeks at Dayuan.

Indo Iranians. The Chinese term "Hongmaofan" (red haired barbarians) and their historic disgust for red hair stemmed from fighting Indo-Iranian Horse Nomads during the Warring States period from before the Chinese Empire
