Legion Pulp: Corday and the Seven League Boots

It’s December 15th.  Time for another pulp fiction story about the Foreign Legion.  This story was quite intriguing–right up to the very end I had no idea how the fantastical events could be explained.   The Seven League Boots is narrated again by Theodore Roscoe’s old Legion salt known as Thibaut Corday.  According to Roscoe “In Casablanca I met an old Legionnaire with hash marks up to his elbow.  He had been in the Legion forever and had a thousand stories. I used him as the prototype for my narrator, [Thibaut] Corday.”  This story appeared in Argosy, 24 Jun 1939.
