Legion Pulp: Warriors in Exile

This short story, written by H. Bedford-Jones,  was picked up in Blue Book Magazine (July 1938).  Bedford-Jones was a prolific writer of adventure tales and was known as “King of the Pulps”.  The story is about the Foreign Legion in Dahomey in 1892 and involves a case of two German brothers caught up in the intrigue of King Behanzin‘s court.  It’s a good read with a nice twist toward the end.  On a historical note, one of the king’s brothers actually joined the Foreign Legion and made Corporal in the early 1900’s.  I’ll post the article on that later.
