The Making of a Legionnaire/Peter Macdonald. Guild Publishing. Hardcover. First edition 1990. Out of print. Condition: Very good. ISBN 0283060158
Painting a vivid picture of this living legend, this book explores why men are drawn to the Legion, where they come from, how they are accepted and given a new identity and how they are transformed, through vigorous training, into one of the toughest fighting units in the world. Above all, it explains how the various nationalities, including those from Britain, combine to form a single, cohesive force.
