Legion of the Lost: The True Experience of an American in the French Foreign Legion
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungSince 1831, the French Foreign Legion has been a renowned fighting force. It gives men a new lease on life-and a chance to test their physical and mental limits. In 1999, that's just what American Jaime Salazar was looking for.
The son of underpaid Mexican immigrants, Jaime earned a degree in mechanical engineering from Purdue. But at twenty-three, he was disillusioned with the corporate fast track. So he became an outcast American in a hard-bitten group of recruits-men on the run from their pasts, men without hope: He joined the French Foreign Legion.
From the Legion's notoriously brutal training to Salazar's fierce competitiveness, ultimate disillusionment and dramatic desertion, "Legion of the Lost" is a compelling, firsthand account of today's French Foreign Legion that will dispel myths while adding to the legend of the finest trained army of warriors the world has ever known.
