The French Foreign Legion (Men-at-Arms). If I have one criticism it's that illustrator Mike Chappell was still in his 'heavy-handed period' in 1981, and his subsequent work for Martin Windrow has improved markedly. Still that's a minor point and this remains an excellent single-volume overview of the subject and a good companion to the more detailed Osprey histories French Foreign Legion Since 1945 (Men-at-arms),French Foreign Legion 18721914 (Men-at-arms),French Foreign Legion, 1914-45 (Men-at-arms) &French Foreign Legion Paratroopers (Elite).

One of Martin Windrow's masterpieces, this book is now a little dated with many other small contributions made by Windrow through the Men-at-Arms and Warrior series of Osprey Publishing, but a reader interested in the French Foreign Legion can still read this book with some profit. Martin Windrow is an expert in the subject and the artwork by Mike Chappell is amazing, with colorfull plates about the légionnaires uniforms and equipment.

The French Foreign Legion is a military service branch of the French Army established in 1831. Legionnaires are highly trained infantry soldiers and the Legion is unique in that it is open to foreign recruits willing to serve in the French Armed Forces. When it was founded, the French Foreign Legion was not unique; other foreign formations existed at the time in France. Commanded by French officers, it is open to French citizens, who amounted to 24% of the recruits in 2007.

Royal 0ctavo, [25.5cm/10inches], full gilt-embossed deep walnut-coloured cloth w/ mylar-protected dust jacket, pp. 159, indexed. Illustrated with b-w halftones, as well as 32 colour plates by Chappell. Martin C. Windrow is a British historian, editor and author of several hundred books, articles and monographs, particularly those on organizational or physical details of military history, and the history of the post-war French Foreign Legion, His most notable works include The Last Valley, an account of the Battle of Dien Bien Phu during the First Indochina War, which was published in 2004 to "critical acclaim", and Our Friends beneath the Sands published in 2010.

It is easy to see why Martin Windrow is an honorary member of the French Foreign Legion. I can't imagine there is another source on FFL uniforms that is more definitive and better-illustrated. I just wish that there could be an updated version to bring the uniform information up to the present day.

IF YOUR A HUGE FAN OF MARTIN WINDROW'S WRITING, MICHAEL CHAPPELL'S GREAT MILITARY ART WORK, THE ACCURATE UNIFORM HISTORY OF THE FAMED FRENCH FOREIGN LEGION YOU WANT THIS BOOK - I NOW OWN BOTH A HARD, AND SOFT COPY!

I bought this book because I was interested in FFL's colonial uniforms in Algeria in the early 1900's. The book surpassed my expectations. This book doesn't just give uniform details; the illustrations are outstanding. The narrative chapters also detail actions that will interest anyone interested in the FFL in other periods or skirmish gaming for the period.

Uniforms from the Legion's beginning through most of the 20th Century. A handy reference.

Mamuro
Great book, answered my questions, and even had that old book store musty smell.

Bajinn
Very interesting book about uniforms of the French Foreign Legion, concise but very well written by an expert in the subject, with an account of major actions of the Legion, plus detailed information about the uniforms and equipment of this fighting corps. Superbly illustrated by Mike Chappel.

Recommended if one wants to start reading about the Legion.

Enalonasa
The most complete guide in FFL uniforms that I have seen. Martin Windrow once again showed he is an expert in the subject and the artwork is amazing, with colorfull plates about the légionnaires uniforms, equipment and etc.
