Legion Pulp: The Affair at Dar-Mashrik

Here is something that didn’t actually appear in a pulp but it WAS written by the master of Foreign Legion pulp fiction, Georges Surdez.  This story comes from the February 1937 issue of The Elks Magazine–the official magazine of The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks.  Back in the good old days many magazines featured fiction as a way to keep their subscription rates up.  Publications such as the American Legion Magazine, The Shrine Magazine (Shriners/Masons), Boys Life Magazine, and even the WWII serviceman’s magazine Yank had some fiction mixed in with soldiers anecdotes.

This story starts off good–in a small fort in the hills of Morocco manned by 40 some legionnaires.
