The Englishman Parris recounts his basic training in becoming a French Foreign Legionnaire with a 'you-are-there' detail and liveliness in places down to the cot he slept on and the food he ate, but also the weapons he learned to use and the tactical lessons he and the other recruits were taught. Like most other Legionnaires, Parris joined from a deep sense of disappointment after certain difficult experiences in his life although he left the Legion after a few years and is now living in England married with children. The challenging training takes place in environments as varied as French Guyana, North Africa desert, and hills of Corsica, with Parris and his fellow recruits having to master different skills and succeed at different objectives in each. Parris gives an indelible inside look at the rigorous training Legionnaires undergo.
