Legion Pulp: Warriors in Exile “Fighting Through”

Blue Book 1938-05 0055One pulp fiction author that has not been represented here too often is H. Bedford- Jones.  Beford-Jones was a highly prolific writer who wrote just about every type of genre pulp fiction that was popular at the time.  His specialty, if one had to choose, would simply be “adventure” with a hint of high seas.  His contribution to Foreign Legion pulp fiction primarily consists of his stories under the collective name of “Warriors in Exile”.  This series appeared monthly in Blue Book Magazine from June 1937 to October 1938 and consisted of the following stories.  I previously posted Warriors in Exile “The King’s Pipe” (No. XIV) back in May of 2011.  “Fighting Through” is number XII in the series and takes place in Tonkin during the 1884-1885 siege of Tuyên Quang–one of the Foreign Legion’s truly epic battles.  Thanks to JvH for the scan and Urf for populating a copy to the usenet.
