When you get a copy of Alex Lochrie’s book go to chapter 11. A few of my personal photos of the operation. Libyan prisoners on their way back to Libya...

Finally got to, and finished Alex Lochrie's Fighting for French Foreign Legion. Very good book, real page-turner, would gladly read more. It was very high on my list for quite some time and I'm glad I finally read it. First half could be posted as advertisement to join Foreign Legion, while second half (about Sarajevo), could serve as social advertising- sort of wake up call... I never met with such close relation and description of what was going on, in there. I could feel that Lochrie was taking it more personal, while writing that part, and with every page I was realizing more and more why.

Now I started book, which was probably on top of my list for years- Men in Green Faces, by Gene Wentz. It's not about Foreign Legion- it's novel about Navy Seals in Vietnam. Read today over quarter of it, and it seems like very good read.

No, I didn't. Pretty much forum members' stories I managed to dig into, are only some stuff mentioned here and there, for example Jonny's photos, with short description what we are looking at.

P.S. Earlier mentioned Alex Lochrie's book is very high on my list. I'm not sure is it going to be next what I'll read, but I'm planning to get to it very soon. I looked into beginning some time ago and it seems really well written/told. Is there anything else worth recommendation (in English)? Except what I mentioned above, I read only few books written by Polish authors.
I’m glad you like my photos. I got plenty more that I haven’t uploaded yet. But that’s the real legion anyway. A book might follow, but I’m a bit lazy. Sorry.
