The French Foreign Legion is one of the most famous military organizations in the world. It jealously guards traditions rooted in an extraordinary fighting reputation gained on battlefields all over the world since its formation in the 1830s. Since its withdrawal from Algeria in the 1960s its regiments have been transformed - the modern Legion has minimal responsibility for providing colonial garrisons. Based in France, its units of mechanized infantry and engineers, armoured cavalry and paratroopers are now among the most powerful and sophisticated assets of the French Army. Yves Debay, a leading military photo-journalist, presents a strikingly illustrated review of the French Foreign Legion's operations since 1990. This volume includes more than 100 full-colour photographs.
