No, the "Devil's Guard" on Project Gutenberg is a much older book by a different author. The original poster was talking about "Devil's Guard" by George Elford. Elford writes about his time as an ex German SS officer and his subsequent career in the French Foreign Legion, doing all sorts of dirty deeds in Vietnam. Even though I read the book over 20 years ago, I still remember his gleeful description of tying Vietminh prisoners to the front of vehicles to forestall landmines and ambushes. (According to some folk, the book was a work of fiction).
