|The French Foreign Legion is without a doubt the most notorious, bloody and ruthless band of mercenaries in the world. It has long been a refuge for men on the run, violent ex-criminals and strong men with a death-wish coupled with a desire to travel.
This is a true account of events that were sometimes glorious, sometimes appalling - it is a unique opportunity to understand what it is to be a Legionnaire.
'A gripping and at times brutal story of life inside the Legion. No young man with a taste of adventure can fail to be captivated.'
