Osprey Men-at-Arms 300 : French Foreign Legion since 1945

Louis Philippe, 'King of the French', created the French Foreign Legion on 10 March 1831. The Legion has inherited the traditions of foreign troops who have served France since the Middle Ages. As an integral part of the French army, the Legion is a professional fighting unit using the same equipment and with the same missions as any other infantry, tank, or engineer unit. They are volunteers of any nationality, race or creed, always ready to serve France. Men of action and elite soldiers with a young and dynamic spirit, they are capable of doing their duty anywhere anytime. Martin Windrow examines the history of this famous force from the end of the Second World War onward, accompanied photographs and illustrations, including eight full page colour plates by Mike Chappell, and a further 16 pages including 11 pages devoted to uniforms.
