History

This belt is a tribute to the great adventurers of the last century. Joseph Kessel was born in Argentina in 1898 and died in France in 1979. He was a soldier, twice decorated of the War Cross, a journalist and press chief, an international correspondant and a member of the Resistance, a squadron captain, an academic, and an author with his nephew, Maurice Druon of the « Chant des partisans » that became the rallying cry of the Resistance. His numerous world tours influenced his literary work with each book leaving the mark of its era: The Lion, La Fortune Carrée, Belle de Jour, L’armée des Ombres, etc.
