"Following the Franco-Prussian War, the Foreign Legion was the strongest and the only all-volunteer white infantry regiment in the French Army. With Algeria pacified by the early 1880s, it provided expeditionary units for France's campaigns of colonial expansion in Vietnam and Africa in the 1880s-1900s, and these hard-bitten mercenaries earned such a reputation for edurance that the Legion was steadily tripled in size to 12 large battalions. This book describes the organization, campaigns and uniforms of the Legion's 'golden age', illustrated with many rare images and meticulously detailed colour plates of uniforms and equipment." Interior - soft crease/bump at top corner fore-edge from approx. page 33 to end of book, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - clean and bright.
