Short history of the Legion 

The French Foreign Legion was created in1831 and the main reason has been to permit foreigners to serve in the French Army; till 1830 they were forbidden. The first Legionnaires landed in Algeria, a country which has been the Legion's homeland for around 130 years.

 

During the 19th century, initially, The Legion was used to expand and protect the French colonial empire. Also fought in almost all French wars including the Franco-Prussian War and both World Wars.

 

The Foreign Legion remains an important and elite part of the French Army.
