FRENCH FOREIGN LEGION PARATROOPS. The Indochina War 1946-54; Dien Bien Phu; The Algerian War 1954-62; Para-Commandos.

Click to EnlargeFRENCH FOREIGN LEGION PARATROOPS. The decision, in Spring 1948, to form two battalions of Foreign Legion paratroopers was prompted by the requirement for enlarged airborne forces in Indochina, and the healthy recruitment then employed by the Legion. There were some initial doubts. The Legion were known to be magnificent heavy infantry, but were felt by some to lack the flexibility and agility demanded by independent airborne operations. In the Legion itself there were some misgivings over the possible clash between the self-consciously exclusive 'para mentality', and the Legion's own very marked Úsprit de corps. Over time, however, all these doubts evaporated with experience. List of contents: The Indochina War 1946-54; Dien Bien Phu; The Algerian War 1954-62; Para-Commandos The ELITE SERIES features detailed and authentic information on the history and appearance of the world's fighting men. Each 64-page 7.25" x 9.75" volume is filled with illustrations including photographs, maps, charts and color plates which support the text on the title subject.
