Hubbard’s stories of Americans in the French Foreign Legion positively sparkle in audio format. Plots, murder, secret treasure, and damsels in distress abound in the three stories in this collection. The full cast delights as the throngs of morally shaky French soldiers and vicious Berber villains. Michael Yurchak voices the American soldiers thrown into this mix in “Hell’s Legionnaire” and “The Barbarians.” His vocal swagger matches the bad-boy characters perfectly. Phil Proctor takes on the jaded Legionnaire in “The Squad That Never Came Back,” a story of greed and death. While all these characters and plot twists are a bit dated, predictable, and decidedly NOT politically correct, listeners should not be deterred. Like all of Galaxy’s Hubbard productions, these stories are best taken for what they are—just plain fun. A.H.A. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2012]
