Percival Christopher Wren (1875–1941) was an English author of thirty-three novels and short stories of adventure fiction, mostly written about colonial soldiers in Africa. He is best know for Beau Geste, written in 1924 about the French Foreign Legion, which was adapted for the screen several times. He was born in Deptford, England. After graduating with an MA from Oxford, he traveled the world for five years before joining the British Cavalry. From there it is believed that he joined the French Foreign Legion, though he kept his membership secret. He worked for ten years in India for the Bombay government before retiring to England to concentrate on his literary career. The success of Beau Geste led to his publication of a series of Foreign Legion novels.
