    What a great book! Author had a nice style that made it easy to read and very enjoyable. Plus you can clearly see the author's point: DO NOT join the French Foreign Legion. It was nice to have someone pull back the curtain and give you a look at what goes on rather than just another history book. And after reading this I'd also want to give up french fries, french toast, french literature . . . you get the point. It seems more like daycare for soldiers than actual military life: endless duties ( [...]

    Evan McGorman spent 5 years with the French Foreign Legion. He had researched this military unit extensively and yet when he enlisted it was not exactly what he expected.His book tells how to join and what to expect, as the title indicates. But he adds the daily, mundane, tidbits the one can expect. You will learn where to join, what to pack, what you can expect to be taken from you. He details the basic training and goes through the rank structure and the makeup of the various divisions within [...]

    Hey, you never know.

    As someone who is strongly considering joining the Legion, I found this book very helpful, enlightening, and entertaining to read. You follow the author from his initial consideration to join at home, until some time after he left his service after his initial 5 year contract. The book is filled with adventure and grueling misadventure from the dreaded corvee (chores), to being stranded in the deserts of Africa, to coming under attack during his time in Sarajevo. The author seems very trustworth [...]

    A very eye-opening first-hand experience of an American's five years in the French Légion Etrangère (FFL). He recounts the process of joining in, the initial probation, training period, assignation into a regiment, and overseas posting. I find it to be honest, very informative (one of their main songs is about blood sausage which they sing before eating every day), humorous and rather detailed. The author compares with his experience in the army of his country, and finds several points that he [...]

    Easy to read and comprehend. Once you start reading, it is hard to put down this book. This is definitely in the list of required reading for anyone interested in the FFL or thinking about the joining the FFL. McGorman also included his experience as an UN peacekeeper in Yugoslavia and in Africa; primarily Chad and Djibouti.

    Knowing little about the FFL, curiosity pulled me to this book and I couldn't have found a better initiation into the world. Having been in the Legion, McGorman gives you a blunt, informative, and equally entertaining layout of what to expect if you're even considering joining.And per his advice, I think I'll not join.

    Tres bien!The author just does an outstanding job. I had a friend who tried and failed to join the legion in the mid 90's. He should be glad he failed, he would never have made it. This book covers everything in outstanding detail. If you have any interest in the legion, this is a must read.

    Enticing readWritten as a "How To" mingled with a collection of military stories, this book is directed to the few that choose to wander off in search of excitement under a kepi blanc.

    Robert
    Five stars for delivering exactly what is promised: an instruction manual on joining and living in the FFL. The only book of its kind. Includes desertion tips in case you change your mind.

    Jim
    Nothing but informative, not for someone looking for endless adventure and firefights however. This is very much a manual for the perspective volunteer, I found it very useful

    Michael Romo
    McGorman describes how to join the Legion and what you can expect when you join. Clearly, the Legion is not a picnic nor is it for the faint-hearted!
