Escape from the Legion is loosely based on fact and real events. It tells the story of "Tom," a young Swede in his twenties who was shanghaied into the French Foreign Legion in the 1970s, and after surviving all manner of adventures, manages to escape. This unlikely tale of a young ex-soldier plucked unceremoniously from a conventional life in Sweden, describes how as an unwilling recruit of the FFL, he confronts the mental and physical challenges of the Legion. Tom’s narrative sustains a lively pace to keep up with everything that happens to him. A sequence of events unfolds to test his instinct for survival, as well as his capacity for indulgence. With a wealth of scenarios, each authentic and vivid in detail, the novel demonstrates the author’s ability to see drama in terms of real life, and spin it into a convincing and captivating yarn. From brutality to tenderness, from the inexplicable to the inevitable, with Tom there is never a dull moment.
