    Default Franšais par le sang versÚ (French by the blood shed)

    An interesting docu about the struggle of the Legionnaires to get their French citizenship when wounded in harms way for France.

    Sadly only in french, but for those who understand the language, a good watch

    I thought they got French citizenship after signing their contract?

    It's definitely 3 years for good and loyal services, or immediately if you're wounded in action (by blood shed as the title says)
