Naval Battle between Portuguese and Dutch in Baía (aabout 1657).
Historician Charles pxer defined the dutch-portuguese conflicts like “the real first World War”. Effectivly, the fight between the two powers had a global character, including Macau, Maluku and the sea of Japan and spreading through the Atlantic and Brazil.
"Última chamada para o país maravilhoso, embarque imediato…para os milhões de portugueses nos quatro cantos do mundo e todos aqueles que acreditaram na nossa selecção!!" até arrepia

Portuguese paratroopers during the Portuguese Colonial War
Portugal in WWI did not have only glorious moments.
“Essentially, in April of 1918 when the Germans broke through the Portuguese lines at Lys, there were hundreds of deserters who literally ran away without firing a shot. When British Command learned of the breakthrough, they dispatched the only unit available to plug one of the holes in the line, a unit of bicycle infantry. Somewhere between the front line and the line of retreat, the Portuguese deserters ran into the British bicyclists. Supposedly, some of the Portuguese troops “beat up” the British bicyclists and stole their bicycles before riding as fast as they could to the rear.”
