Product description

Synopsis

Driven to the French Foreign Legion by a need to escape and a sense of adventure, Tony Sloane was selected for one of the Legion's crack regiments. He spent five years in this most mysterious of all armies, becoming one of the few foreigners to be promoted to corporal, and to become an instructor. From his basic training in the south of France and Corsica to war-zone operations in South Africa, Sloane describes the day-to-day reality of Legion life - including the tedium in which alcohol-fuelled grudges can fester, his time in solitary confinement, and the sheer adrenaline of the battlefield. This is a true account of events that were sometimes glorious and sometimes appalling.
