The foreign legion: a bit of history
The foreign legion is part of the French army, however it has a special command and is independent in the recruitment of its units. It groups together several specialties including infantry, cavalry, engineers and airborne troops. The legionnaires, also called "white kepi" are part of a professional fighting unit that operates all over the world. Created in 1831, the original purpose of the foreign legion was to allow the incorporation of foreign soldiers into the French army. During the 19th century, legionary battalions were mainly used to protect and expand the French colonial empire. The legion also took part in numerous assaults during the two World Wars, as well as during the conflicts in Indochina and Algeria. Nowadays, legionnaires carry out missions to help populations or to keep the peace in countries allied to France. The men who form the ranks of the foreign legion are psychologically solid and physically over-trained soldiers, ready to face any situation and to lay down their lives if necessary. The quality and difficulty of the training received by the soldiers of its elite units are a reference in military training throughout the world.
