Their premier troops, of course, were the three Legion battalions of the
6e Regiment de Légion Étrangère.
The Legion also provided the backbone of the invading Free French troops. The
13e Demi-Brigade de Légion Étrangère
has served with the Free French since declaring loyalty to de Gaulle after the fall of France. The bulk of the Gaullist forces are also made up of native colonial troops many of whom joined after the earlier campaigns in Dakar, Gabon, and Eritrea.
