It has the "ah ha ha ha ha ha ha" from the 2rep song. Just noticed it when watching the film the other day.
Mais le diable marche avec nous Ha...
A lot of the legion songs were influenced by the huge German influx after WW2. For some it was La légion or internment or in a few cases Nuremberg.
Of course the legion was glad to have these experienced soldiers with nothing better to do for the next 5 years; Algeria and Morocco still needed patrolling not to mention the war in Indochina which began on 19th Dec 1946.
When I joined up in '84 there were still a lot of legion songs sung in the original German. Someone with a bright idea in a high ranking position thought it best to have them translated into French.

I've seen "1917", I liked it a lot. The camera was superb, it is modern these days - to show the claustrophobia of open space and suspense of what's behind next hill, house, bushes. (y)

Full metal jacket and saving private Ryan are the 2 best I think .This one deathwatch 2002 a war horror I thought was quality about a haunted trench in WW1 .

In the middle of World War I, nine British soldiers caught behind enemy lines seek refuge in a complex network of German trenches. What they soon discover is that they aren't alone - and it isn't a German soldier that's hunting them down.
