Synopsis

Synopsis

This volume covers the classic 'Beau Geste' period, of the French Foreign Legion when the corps was expanded during the most dynamic years of French imperial expansion. Legion battalions fought in the deserts and mountains of southern Algeria and Morocco, as well as in the jungles of North Vietnam, West Africa and Madagascar. Their varied uniforms and equipments for each period and theater are illustrated and examined. Written by a leading expert on the French Foreign Legion, this is a colorful introduction to the period when the Legion forged their legendary fighting reputation.

Praise

"It is another fascinating title and looks at a force that still has a reputation for toughness and getting the job done.  It is a very interesting read and can easily be recommended." - Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness
