The cavalry in 14-18

As if the books that appear in the lists of General Mennessier de La Lance do not sufficiently reflect the barbarism and the heavy tribute paid by the horse, there are many more written than one imagines about the use of horses in war. But nevertheless, it is worth asking what happened to the cavalry at the moment the barbed wire, the submachine gun, the trenches, and the intervention of the aviation or the tanks appeared.

There are great epic tales like that of the first battle of Pelecier’s Marne. The historical reconstitution fans could consult writings on uniforms or the team or read the Regiment Stories published just after the Great War.
