French Army Archives

The ECPAD is the French Army center for multimedia archives. Thousands of photos covering the middle east area are available for sale, the Lebanese conflict being one of the best covered department in those archives. As a customer and regular visitor of the Fort , I can only express my satisfaction with what can be found there. Here are some photo samples of what the center proposes, also found on their website.
