| Drama, War
Unlikely friends in a melting pot of confusion. Simon Murray fights for the French Foreign Legion. Pascal Dupont fights for himself. War torn men question honour, hope, morality...because you can desert everything...except yourself.
The tank that is used in this movie in several scenes is an american produced M-60A1 Main Battle Tank, first produced in 1959 and fielded in US forces in 1960. This film takes place in late 59 or early 1906's and as such, a newly fielded American tank would not be available to a French forces, much less FFL who typically suffered the worst equipment of all French armed forces.
Many people have asked why I joined the French Foreign Legion. And there is no clear answer. I was going nowhere is a hurry. I hadn't told anyone the English Army turned me down. I was fresh out of ideas. So I went in search of a different destiny.
In Legion, you don't get para wings during basic training. Although all new legionnaires are wearing them.
