LINE IN THE SAND: Foreign Legion Forts and Fortifications in Morocco 1900-1926

LINE IN THE SAND: Foreign Legion Forts and Fortifications in Morocco 1900-1926
by Jeynes, Richard

1-236940

Gives an overview of the French conquest of Morocco between 1900 and 1926. Whilst providing a general outline of the conquest of Morocco the book concentrates on the use of forts and other fortifications built by the French Foreign Legion to secure the territory gained and pacify the areas of operation. Includes three b/w photos, one color illustration, 28 color photos, 14 maps, and two tables.

Looks at the construction of the outposts and forts, garrison life in them in peace and war, operations in the desert and mountains, and desperate last stands. Particular emphasis is given to two sites where the author undertook detailed archaeological investigations as well as extensive use of primary sources (many of which are now out of print).

Contains numerous plans, maps, and photographs to support the text. Many of the photographs show the forts as they are today, and feature imagery of the archaeological digs and some of the items found. Provides insight into the French colonial experience in Morocco and the methods they attempted to control and defend the land against numerous counter insurgencies.
