    This is one of those books I ve been meaning to read sincewell since i was a kid Gary Cooper is Beau Geste for me I ll say thisthat old movie isn t too far from the book and it captures the book s adventure.Told from the beginning by a Frenchman who of course gets the compliment that he s like an Englishman telling the spooky, frightening, foreshadowing climactic tale of Fort Zinderneuf He lead the relief column to the fort which he found unfallen with it s gates closed and locked.
