Got to go against all the high praise...
or at least how this book was marketed.:”The Heroic Century of the French Foreign Legion?” Really? I found a prosaic (albeit, well researched) History of French Colonialism. I thought I’d be in for more anecdotal accounts, details on FFL campaigns, reports from the front...instead, be prepared for a somewhat lusterless account of political intrigue, in depth analysis of one particular Marshal and even intellectual philosophizing on colonialism. Yawn! Looked up the author...no surprise...Always amuses me to read the conclusions of someone purporting to be an “expert” when there is (apparently) nothing in their background except Ivory Tower research. Let a Legionnaire tell us what a Legionnaire thinks...please.
