Legion Pulp: One Night in Alsace

One Night in AlsaceThis month’s Foreign Legion pulp story comes from the November 1949 issue of Blue Book Magazine.  It was written by Georges Surdez and illustrated by Hamilton Green. This story would be one of the last ever written by Surdez as he passed away the same month that this story appeared in Blue Book.   The setting is December 1944 as the Allied forces slowly push the Germans out of France.  The French 5th Armored Division (including the First Foreign Legion Cavalry Regiment/1REC and a Motorized March Regiment composed of the 3rd Foreign Legion Infantry Regiment/3REI) of the Free French Forces finds itself along the front lines in Alsace.  (Thanks to “saskia” for the scan.)
