About the Show
The French Foreign Legion has long been surrounded by intrigue and mystique, but it's time for them to reveal a little more about who they are and what they do. Meet the legionnaires of the 2nd Foreign Infantry Regiment in Nimes. They train, march, parade and live in barracks. Find out first-hand, what it's like being in the Legion and learn more about the backgrounds of the men who make up this fighting unit. As the layers of mystery around the Legion are pared back, more about this regiment and the legionnaires is revealed, showing how they live today and in the past. See the legionnaires in action in France; on a peacekeeping mission in Ivory Coast; and in Djibouti, where the Legion has its toughest combat training centre.
