Although France can be a pretty faggy country, there happens to be one particular aspect of their martial culture that has always fascinated me – The French Foreign Legion.
While the French people and their government are currently obsessed with turning their capital into Botswana and breeding out their entire indigenous population with Africans and Muslims, the Foreign Legion remains a pretty bad ass military institution. Unlike the increasingly degenerate gay and transvestite US military, the FFL doesn’t allow women to serve, encourages tattoos (as long as they are not “stupid”), and will beat the ever-loving shit out of you for being lazy or failing to learn the French language fast enough.
While many join the US military hoping to see combat and “get some” and never actually do, a five year contract with the Legion virtually guarantees some sort of combat engagement during the course of your enlistment. While France has the rightful reputation as the worldwide leader in faggotry, they actually have a fair amount of former colonial interests and other overseas assets in really shitty areas of the world which they are willing to deploy a hired band of foreign killers to protect.
I am not quite certain when this combat manual was published, but it was definitely after the Legion’s intervention in Zaire to protect the lives of European citizens from roving bands of machete-wielding African savages and before the current PC craze took over – as evidenced by this passage from one of the early pages that describes the FFL’s 2nd Rep:
Certainly the most famous of such units is the legendary Foreign Legion 2nd REP. This unit has distinguished itself particularly in its intervention in Shaba province, Zaire, to protect the white population against waves of xenophobic anti-white hatred connected with a series of insurrections.
Don’t let the section posted above fool you – this book is more about weapons and tactics and less about the history of the French Foreign Legion. There are several good documentaries on them currently on YouTube that I will post below for those interested:
Again, this is a military manual, not some adventurous work of fiction or even non-fiction. If you dig that sort of thing, then click here for a free .pdf download of French Foreign Legion Paratrooper Combat Manual
