Buried among the numerous lists on the superb website of the French military, Mémoire des Hommes, is a collection of filmed pages of names of those foreigners who rushed to fight for France during the brief period from the 1st of September 1939 to the 25th of June 1940. The lists are not complete, pages are missing, there are gaps. Nevertheless, there are many, many names of men from all over the world, including from Germany, who joined this unique legion for foreigners within the French Army.
