The year is 1935. Beneath the sweltering sun of French North Africa only the tough, iron men of the Foreign Legion stand between the restless tribesmen of the interior with their dreams of jihad, and the innocent traders and colonists of the coastal towns. Lieutenant Crispin de Corville, a secret agent for the Legion, discovers a plot to unite the tribes and win the essential arms and ammunition for their revolt, taking them from the Legion itself. Fighting his way across the desert to escape the hate-filled tribesmen, he seeks to learn their plans while disguised as one of them-and, at the same time, to convey two American women travelers to safety. But Corville soon finds that the sands of the desert are indeed the Sands of Destiny!
