Wehrmacht and Germans in the pre-war French Foreign Legion

Post by Peter » 15 Jan 2003 13:43

Can anybody tell me if there was a definite policy to imprison German's who had served in the Legion pre-war but who returned to fight for Germany in 1939/40.

I would have expected combat veterans to be welcomed back with open arms but apparently they were not.

thanks
Pete
