Inhaltsangabe: Now this title is in paperback for the first time. Known for its austerity and discipline, deprivation and sacrifice, the French Foreign Legion is perhaps the most intriguing and famous fighting force in the world.Five years is a long time to commit to anything - especially when your life is at stake. In "Life in the French Foreign Legion" Evan McGorman writes about his personal experiences between 1989 and 1994 during his time with the elite corps. He discusses every aspect of Legion life including the pros and cons of desertion.Today, the Legion is as contemporary an infantry and light-armoured corps as you will find anywhere while still upholding its well-known traditions. Present-day circumstances have relegated the Legion almost to the role of a peace-time army, but it still finds itself responding to the occasional crisis in Africa and around the world. In the past, it was used in a peace-keeping function with the United Nations in Bosnia and Cambodia and in all probability will continue to fulfil duties of this nature in the years to come. "Life in the French Foreign Legion" strips the veil of mystery from one of the world's most secretive and misunderstood military organizations.
About the Author: In 1983, Evan McGorman read a magazine article about the French Foreign Legion and for the next six years was consumed by the romantic notion of running away to join up. In 1989, after having served four years as a gunner in the Royal Canadian Horse Artillery, he enlisted. He spent the next five years as a member of the Legion's 2nd Foreign Parachute Regiment (2eme REP). During his final three years as a legionnaire, Evan served as a radio operator in exotic and often dangerous locales, from Chad to Sarajevo during the height of the war. His contract with the Legion expired in 1994.
