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.
