Many movies and books about that famous warriors.
But here you can see the real ones in this superb photos.
Take note about how and where they sleep, eat and healed their wounds

PDF link

Even that the text is in french, if you love all about the legion you are going to enjoy those images from 100 years ago.

Oh, you mean the French FOREIGN Legion.

Of course.
They are THE legion…!. (smile).

Actually, I would say the Romans had THE legions.

Respectfully, when I saw the subject line I immediately thought of the French Foreign Legion. Rome had their legions, Lauzun had a legion, but when you say "The Legion" there can be only one.

More than confused from my part to put one thread about the Roman legions in the nineteenth century Board! (smile).
Not mention French Wagaming.

But apart from this, for those who loves the legion (french) this is an interesting Archaeology link which shows the most famous legion fort.

Don't miss the themes in the right column.

Hope you enjoy!.

Interesting how people in foreign countries are interested in the French Foreign Legion, while most French people, although respectful for the Legion, are not very interested in it.

Perhaps because Legion soldiers are foreigners!

…except some of those who registered as "Belgians", of course :)
