Summary
A shot rings out. The Arabs surge forward under a savage fusillade of heavy fire. Nearer and nearer they come, shouting with hate and blood-lust... Geste rushes up and down his side of the roof, pausing only long enough to load his rifle and fire into the shrieking mob below-hoping to trick the Arabs into believing the fort is heavily manned. Load, aim and fire, ignoring the cries and curses of the wounded... the dead sprawl out in their own blood. Of all those hard-bitten veterans who yelled their defiance at the first Arab onslaught, who shouted with joy at the order of Aux Armes! only ten remain. Ten legionnaires against a thousand Arabs... Beau Geste is the world-famous novel of suspense and adventure... love and glory... courage and treachery. It is the thrilling story of three men who brave the hellish brutality and ruthless savagery of the French Foreign Legion to protect the honor of a woman they love more than their lives
