Beau Geste -- the Novel
Goblinhairedgu on 09/10/2015
|Published in 1924, Beau Geste is considered one of the great adventure stories of the English language: To me, there are memorable characters; deft plotting and action sequences; fascinating details about British aristocratic boyhood, the grueling life in the French Foreign Legion, the unforgiving Sahara; and an overall sense of the British imperial ideal.|
