He looks great! I've always been fascinated by the French involvement in the region. I bashed a few FFL paras some years back. Really need to update these.





Awesome FFL!

The joke about the FFL from the end of WWII until the mid fifties (when both West and East Germany were allowed militaries) wad that it contained German veterans and Spanish anarchists. From left to right, they are a German veteran wearing an Iron Cross, Vietnamese CIPLE volunteer and a Spaniard. The Iron Cross is from the 21st U-boat Commander figure.

thanks for that nate , i know some former german elite servicemen enlisted in the legion but nowhere near as many as popular fiction would have us believe as when in france it became public knowledge they looked harder into the background of recruits
