About the Author

In 1988, rather than pursue a legal career, David Mason joined the French Foreign Legion. He stayed for five years and served in the Legion's elite Parachute Regiment. In 1998, alone with three camels, he walked across Australia at its widest point, carrying out the first recorded solo east-to-west crossing of the Simpson Desert. For this expedition he was awarded the Gold Medal of the Australian Geographic Society. David works in the Department of Defence as a lawyer, is an Army Reserve Major in the Australian Army Legal Corps and has served tours as a civilian adviser in Bougainville and three times in Iraq. In 2010 he returned from a year-long tour to Iraq, where he led a legal team working on the Rule of Law in the Iraqi Ministry of Interior.

This is a powerful and remarkable account of the French Foreign Legion from someone who is obviously well educated, very athletic and very passionate. Of all the Foreign Legion biographies I have read, this is the most thoughtful and most credible. It's an extraordinary book and one that I would recommend to any young man who dreams of a life greater than himself.
