Forts of the French Foreign Legion

Yesterday I had the new Osprey on the French Foreign Legion 1831-71 and very good it is too. Made me think of when I was a kid I had the Airfix Fort Sahara for Christmas and wondering who the Foreign Legion were. Here's an interesting article on the Forts of the Foreign Legion


  1. I recall having this model myself in the 70s. Great memories. Wonderful article you linked to also. Many thanks - I could get into this.

  2. Fort Sahara was by far the best of the Airfix "Fort" series - the tapered tower was outstanding. Happy Days!!
