Larteguy was a French marine paratrooper, combat veteran, journalist and novelist who wrote works of fiction and non-fiction on military affairs and the new paradigms of war in the 20th century. His novels have an existentialist tone. His most famous, The Centurions, set in French Indochina and Algeria, captured the frustrations and heartaches of the new warrior class (embodied by paratroopers, special forces and commandos) as they confronted the brutalities of insurgent warfare abroad and the banalities of moribund military traditions, leftist hostility and popular apathy at home. The post-WWII West was unprepared for the challenges of global revolutionary warfare. Of all his books, only The Centurions and The Walls of Israel remain in print. As well they should as they are as relevant today as they were half a century ago. Perhaps more so given the West's on-going conflict with Islamic jihad, the latest global revolutionary movement. The Walls of Israel remains eminently readable and insightful. Highly, highly recommended.
