This memoir of an Englishman in the French Foreign Legion during the Syrian campaign of the late 1920s relates the brutal story of life in the Legion and war in the deserts of Syria. John Harvey joined the Foreign Legion with the assumption that he would receive a substantial bonus and a glorious adventure. He was wrong on both points. Described is the siege of Rachaya Fort against the Druse faction in Syria, a famous and bloody battle.
