Inside the foreign legion. fodder and the brutality of its NCOs - have historically remained the most controversial. The shock of the training routine is often too much for many to bear, even for tough soldiers who have served in other elite forces. You are fighting to uphold the values and the traditions of the Foreign legion, and great ceremony surrounds that aim, with the rousing songs, the tear-jerking music of the legion bands, the constant reference to legion heroes of the past. And beyond the modern route into the French Foreign Legion is a scenario which fluctuates dramatically between hell on earth and the sheer pride of achievement and camerarderie.

Erwan Bergot, himself a veteran of the heroic battle of Dien Bien Phu, contributes a lively history of the Legion's triumphs and tragedies in all corners of the world-from its desert beginnings in Algeria to its most recent peace-keeping role in Beirut complemented by a selection of rare and telling illustrations from the Foreign Legion's own archives.

Great quality, cool and beautiful pictures, a great read too but you'll see that even the uniforms are different colored than the ones the the FFL wears now. Is a nice book but if what you're looking for is a document where you can see the contemporary FFL in all his glory, this is not what you should buy. I got it and I don't regret at all, it has a lot of history and also some chapters that are not so valuable. It makes a nice center piece for your table and the quality of the printing is as good as it could get many years ago.

It is more of a blast of the past than a historical book.

As one who has a vested interest in the Foreign Legion, it's history and culture, this is one of the most colorful and concise representations of the Legion from it's inception to present. It's coffee-table sized and an excellent conversation starter for your living room.

great photos and stories to match

The book was in much worse condition than I expected.
The prize did not reflect the quality of the book.

I am shocked to see such poor reviews. It is difficult to imagine a book more deserving of five stars than this outstanding profile of a deeply secret society. The pictures are superb. A must for anyone with even a passing interest in military history, or even French history...

This rather large format book has been out of print for some time. However, its one of the best of its kind. It presents a wealth of detailed photographs of operational life within the Legion's units. Those colour plates follow each step in the recruiting, training and operational deployment process for a legionnaire. The author had the full support of the (normally quite secretive) Legion in preparing this pictorial history. That level of support shows up in the quality and scope of this book. Beyond the book's pictorial focus, its editorial content and Legion history material provides an overall balance to the work.
