The Foreign Legion (French Legion entrangere) is a French, elite combat unit, which was created in 1831 by King Louis Philip of Orleans to conduct operations in Algeria. The unit was overwhelmingly recruited from outside France from the outset, and to this day maintains its genuinely foreign character. In the 19th century, the Foreign Legion operated mainly outside its home territory of France - especially in Africa. Soldiers of this formation also took part in both world wars, as well as, for example, in the First Gulf War (1990-1991). At present, Legia consists of approximately 7,700 people divided into 11 regiments. The 2nd Airborne (Parachute) Regiment, based in Calvi, Corsica, is considered to be the most elite. The Foreign Legion is also famous for its very high discipline and strict internal rules. After 1945, units of the Legion were sent wherever the political interests of France were threatened. Interestingly, to this day, it is forbidden to use it in combat in the home country.

Faces and weapons are excellent, clothing good, arms and hands inexplicably poor--arms are clearly too short in several cases. Figures are clearly based on the Osprey Men-At-Arms book 'French Foreign Legion since 1945'. Examining the plates makes it obvious that a good deal of corner-cutting has taken place, like omitting small items of equipment from figures. The man at attention in dress uniform is NOT holding his SMG in the correct manner! Still, a very useful set for anyone with an interest in the Legion, both for out-of-box work and making conversions.
