Elite Forces Survival Guides: Survive in the Desert with the French Foreign Legion

Established in 1831 by Louis Phillipe, King of France, the French Foreign Legion was originally made up a motley crew of criminals, beggars, and adventurers, recruited to remove France's unemployed soldiers at the end of the 1830 French Revolution. Yet today the Legion is a highly respected, well-armed, and elite fighting force - one of the world's toughest units. Although its troops are stationed all over the world, the Legion is famous for its expertise in desert conditions. This book teaches you how these elite troops cope with extreme depravation in some of the world's hottest and most barren climates.
