Just came in the mail today. It's been posted before. How long do you think it will take me to read being that I don't know French yet? Haha I'm going to read it and look up every word if I have to....it's difficult for me to stay motivated to learn French but if the learning includes learning about the Legion, I think it will help me.IMG_20200914_174604498.jpg

I'm not sur that someone who is doing a doctorate in language is suitable to judge a legionnaire on what is being taught (French language) in the legion and what is learned by the legionnaire.
Sure he can gather some info, but the only way to understand how a legionnaire manages to understand the orders transmitted by a Polak, where every second second word is Kurva, is by joining.

This has just appeared on amazon.
Am halfway through and it reads well.

Jeremy Summers, a British banker with a secret that could reveal MI6 intelligence sources involved in the war against drug-funded terrorism, has been seized at gunpoint, in broad daylight, on the streets of west London. An old contact, Raglan - an Englishman who served in the French Foreign Legion - is on his trail.

Raglan's pursuit will lead him to the winter-ravaged wasteland of a remote Russian penal colony. A place that holds Russia's most brutal murderers. A place of death and retribution. How will he get in? More importantly, how will he get out...alive?

Sounds pretty stereotypical to me. Evil drug dealing terrorists, evil Russians and good Englishmen. :)
