Language / Short Polish<->English translations [1033]

Hello, I need your help! My grandfather fought in WW1, he was born in Nowosiolky,Tarnopol in 1895, I have his military booklet and would need help to understand what it says, I would like to know where did he fought, if he was injured, etc. I tried translating myself and it is almost impossible with the hand written words. I am attaching a few photos of the booklet. Many thanks in advance for your help! Really appreciate it!

Hello,
The one I have is a little bit different but same style, has a number in the front page and comes with all pages.
I am not on Facebook; I need to keep on looking and see if I can get it translated. His last name was Mucha, I believe it is a common last name in Poland.

Many thanks for your help!

What I know is that there were Polish Legions fighting in WW1, they were under the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Russia and France.
It is difficult for me to translate because I cannot understand the hand written words, some of them I can but it is complicated without the context.

The booklet was issued in 1914, as far as I understand...but cannot guarantee I am right.
Do you know where else could I go to find more information? I am lost.....
Many thanks for your help

@kaprys
unless the document was issued later and describes his WW1 participation.....

Hello, yes WW1, the dates in his booklet show 1914 - 1920, what does książeczka wojskowa mean?
He was born in 1895.
Many thanks for your help

Many thanks for your help!
My grandfather was born in Tarnopol and got married in Nowosiolsky. I tried his first name and last name and nothing popped up.
It is strange because I have his war booklet which says in the title : KSIAZECZKA WOIKSKOWA.
Anything else you could help me with? I do not read Polish, unfortunately.
Best regards
