Appel: A Canadian in the French Foreign Legion

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Appel-Cana...F8&qid=1521487576&sr=1-1&keywords=legionnaire

Appel: A Canadian in the French Foreign Legion is the first-hand account of the author's six years as a professional soldier during the 1990s, and his experience in the Legion's elite Group Commando Parachutistes (GCP). Joel Struthers recounts the dangers and demands of military life, from the rigours of recruitment and operational training in the rugged mountains of France, to face-to-face combat in the grasslands of some of Africa's most troubled nations.

Told through the eyes of a soldier, and interspersed with humorous anecdotes, Appel is a fascinating story that debunks myths about the French Foreign Legion and shows it more accurately as a professional arm of the French military. Struthers provides insight into the rigorous discipline that the Legion instills in its young recruits, - who trade their identities as individuals for a life of adventure and a role in a unified fighting force whose motto is "Honour and Loyalty."

Foreword by Col. Benoit Desmeulles, former commanding officer of the Legions 2e Regiment Etranger Parachutistes.
