US Marines vs Legion
I may be wrong, but I have noticed that a lot of people on this forum keep comparing the US Marines to the Legion. Why even bother comparing these two units when there are so many better units to compare with the Legion. For example, the British Royal Marines or PARAS, the old Canadian Airborne Regiment, the Dutch Para Commandos this list goes on SO my first question is why do people compare the elite Legion to the Marines and my second is why don't people compare the Legion to these other units?

I haven't been in the Legion or paras, Marines etc but from i understand why compare at all? They are different armies both good at their jobs with different roles...

Comparing regiments is a waste of time. Secondly, the Legion, per se, is not elite. It is a standard army.

I have not been in the Legion but every book on elite units I have ever picked up and read has the French Foreign Legion in it. Anyways I will find out when I join I guess.
