The Praetorians, like The Centurions, to which it is a sequel,

This novel is the story of two cities that no longer exist:

Hanoi and Saigon.

In the Tonkin Delta there is indeed a city that still bears the

name of Hanoi, just as in the Cochinchina Delta there is

another that is called Saigon. The former is the capital

of an authoritarian and bureaucratic republic, the latter

of an anachronistic and sanctimonious state.

.... J. Larteguy

All who know and love south-east Asia will recapture in this

splendid novel of adventure--by France's great best selling

writer--the distinctive smell of the jungle in the dry season,

the cries of the beasts at night, and all the disturbing and

sensuous charm of of a paradise on earth. For this is Laos,

and we are taken through the secret trail of the Hos, to little

known people like the Khas who live naked, or the Meos,

the men of the opium poppy, the last truly free people

in the world... Blurb

Once more I feel Rosinante's ribs between my heels, " Che

Guevara wrote his parents as he returned to the guerrilla life.

That Guevara should identify himself with Cervantes' hero

seems particularly apt to Jean Larteguy, for he seems the

archetype of the Latin American revolutionary, from Bolivar

to Guevara, more as the idealistic Don Quixote than the

modern Marxist... Blurb
