The paratroopers of the French Foreign Legion are relentlessly preparing themselves to action. And when it is time to go, their missions are fulfilled with the efficiency legendary to the Old Legion. From the rice fields of Indochina to the streets of Mitrovica, the 2e REP has taken part to every campaign fought by the French Army. The first part of this book is devoted to this historical background. The second part, in which military reporter Yves Debay describes the missions and the men of the REP, shows the regiment as it is today. The third part of the book is a detailed description, company by company, of the regiment’ strength and equipment.
