Legion Pulp: Duty

DutyThis month’s pulp fiction story set in the French Foreign Legion comes from the pen of J. D. Newsom, a prolific writer of these Legion tales.  Duty appeared in the 01 April 1931 edition of Adventure magazine and it is very much a hard-boiled tale.  It’s told in the first person and is so very typical of Newsom’s style to take a Chicago hard-case and drop him into the Foreign Legion, turn up the pressure and see what happens.  This time our narrator is a witness to a tragic incident that profoundly changes his life.


NOTE:  Added missing page 39 to the .pdf on 19 Oct.
