(4.1 stars; 24 reviews)

An educated gentleman, Mr Manington has given an insight into the unusual experiences of an Englishman in the French Foreign Legion, such as no ordinary "mercenary" could have done. Most of the narrative deals with Tonquin, and the fighting there against the rebels in their forest fastnesses. Incidentally, in giving an account of his friendship for the native sergeant, Doy-Tho, the author has been able to impart to the pages of the book an Oriental atmosphere that we think will prove attractive to the reader. - Summary by Editors' Note (7 hr 56 min)

Vietnam Nam? Hadn't changed much when our turn came up. A good read.

Not bad, a bit slow but interesting. Not many “action” scenes
