About this Item

728, illus., glossary, source notes, selected bibliography, index, front DJ flap price clipped, DJ slightly worn and soiled. In spite of its desertion rate, its fatal preference for frontal assault, and its resistance to modernization, the polyglot, multinational force known as the French Foreign Legion has maintained a reputation for do-or-die combat ferocity since its founding a century and a half ago. This study includes vivid descriptions of such classic legionnaire battles as the 1948 siege at Zaatcha in Morocco, and the valiant last stand at DienBien Phu in 1954. Bookseller Inventory # 54060
