Three brothers Geste are metaphorical images of values of the British upper class of past times when dignity was respected. Geste brothers are orphans brought up by his aunt in Brandon Abbas.

When precious jewel "Blue Water" disappears, suspicion falls on young people and Beau left Britain, to join the Foreign Legion, it is followed by his brothers - his twin Digby, and John. After several adventure separated from Digby, sadistic Sergeant Major Lejaune took command of a small garrison in Fort Zinderneuf in French North Africa, and one - the only attack of Tuaregs prevent rebellion and mass desertion, only Geste brothers and a few loyal legions are against this conspiracy. With behavior adventures during the journey, and loyalty Beau indicates that is true of France and the Legion, and he died in office. On his return to Brandon Abbas, the last surviving brothers - John - was welcomed by his aunt and his fiancee Isobel, and the reasons for the theft of jewelry is revealed - it was a matter of honor, this was the only way to have something decent . The original novel, in which the various film screen adaptations little or much based on Beau Geste, gives an authentic and very detailed description of life in the Foreign Legion, which might suggest (this, of course, is not proven) that Wren served in legion.
