Legion Pulp: Gentlemen Pay

Here is another great story from Georges Surdez which appeared in the February 1938 issue of Adventure.  It starts out like other Surdez stories revolving around a young officer’s honor and courage or in this case a sudden and confusing lack of courage that concerns the senior sergeant in the section.  Why is Lieutenant d’Hervier suddenly faking an injury and lagging behind his troops when he is expected to lead from the front?  This mystery plays out amidst the backdrop of hard fighting against the mountain warriors of the Rif in the arid mountains of Morocco and ends in a gruesome if not unexpected end.

Gentlemen Pay

REMINDER:  Closing in on the 158th anniversary of the Battle of Camerone (30 April 2021).
