Beau Geste is the adventure novel that brought the French Foreign Legion to the popular imagination. The story follows Michael "Beau" Geste and two brothers as they are accused of a crime and must escape to French North Africa and join the Legion. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

Review: Beau Geste

User Review  - Jennifer - Goodreads

Decided to re-read this after loving it, oh, 35 years ago? I was surprised to find that I remembered the plot quite well! Probably in my high school enthusiasm, I would have given it 5 stars - it didn't thrill me quite so much this time around but it's still a good yarn. Read full review

Review: Beau Geste

User Review  - Kris - Goodreads

After a very slow and rocky start, this book really takes off and is quite the adventure tale. A few racial slurs, standard for the time, but I've read worse, in that regard. Surprisingly enjoyable tale! Read full review
