I finally got around to gathering up all of the various books I own about the French Foreign Legion and put them onto one book shelf. Some of these were purchased over 30 years ago . I have been hitting E-Bay and Amazon over the past year and purchased several of these for rock bottom prices. Others were not so rock bottom such as Hell in the Legion and Tiger of the Legion. Some other books I saw for sale on the internet were only for serious collectors–good condition vintage books mainly. I have many more Foreign Legion memoirs in digital form courtesy of Google Books and the Internet Archive. I can see how addicting book collecting can be. Especially if you collect books on a very narrow niche subject such as the Zulu war, Arctic Exploration, the Tasmanian Wars or the FFL. I’ve come across two sites that have reference points for materials of the FFL. Vivelalegion is an outstanding website that seemingly attempts to document just about any book, memoir, article, menu, music program, graphic, etc. that has ever been created on the French Foreign Legion. Not sure if the forum there is active. The other link is to a facebook page that serves as bibliography with endless dustcover photos of English language books on the FFL.
My collection is simply paltry by comparison: My FFL Book Collection
