Legion Pulp: Sons of the Sword


This story is from Georges Surdez again.  An early story of his that appeared in the September 1st, 1928 issue of Adventure.  It does not center on the Foreign Legion but instead on another of France’s indigenous colonial forces known as the Mokhazenis.  This name is derived from the name of the various governing bodies that ruled in Morocco over several centuries known as the makhzen.  This armed force served the king of Morocco and eventually came under the organization and control of France.  They were irregular light cavalry for the most part.

Sons of the Sword

I had to take the easy way out again on this month’s pulp story.  Although I have this issue of Adventure on my scan pile it was recently scanned by someone else.  So hats off and merci beaucoup to the original scanner.
