French-Algerian War

1-235210 Hoskins, Peter A LEGION PARA IN ALGERIA: Tony Hunter-Choat's War, 1957-62 Bio of Tony Hunter-Choat is based on his memoir and covers his formative years as a paratrooper with the elite 1st Foreign Parachute Regiment (1st REP) of the French Foreign Legion between 1957 and 1962 -- before he joined the British Army. Includes 21 b/w photos, and four maps.

In about two and a half years, he was promoted to Sergeant and became the youngest NCO in the Foreign Legion. He was involved in ferocious combat which resulted in three awards of the Croix de la Valeur Militaire, the Medaille Militaire, and in due course, appointment as Commander of the Legion d'Honneur - a singular achievement for a Brit. Tony served during a turbulent time for France, with the return to power of General de Gaulle in the face of the threat of a military coup d'etat and the Generals' Putsch against de Gaulle in 1961. Tony was heavily involved in the Putsch with his regiment, which was disbanded as a consequence of its key role. 1 vol, 190 pgs 2022 UK, HELION AND COMPANY
