A greatgrandfather was fighting on the eastern front against the Russian Empire, got captured, later joined the Czechoslovak legions and fought the Soviets in the Siberia. Other greatgrandfather fought the Italians on Piave. One of them got into a concentration camp later in ww2 for allegedly organising sabotages in a gun factory. Grandfather was a military adviser to Egypt in the 60s when everyone was fighting Israel. I think my father once mentioned we also had someone in k.u.k. Kriegsmarine, but I cannot recall who that was. Definitely not a direct relative though.
