CHASSEUR OF 1914. EXPERIENCES OF THE TWILIGHT OF THE FRENCH LIGHT CAVALRY BY A YOUNG OFFICER DURING THE EARLY BATTLES OF THE GREAT WAR IN EUROPE.

Details

This is a fascinating and unusual book. Written in the early years of the Great War in Europe by a young professional officer of Chasseurs a Cheval this is a lyrical work full of enthusiasm idealism and conviction in the spirit of the Light Cavalry. In places the reader can easily imagine it is the account of a Napoleonic or 2nd Empire cavalryman - so similar are the scenes of campaigning against the common Prussian enemy. Dupont's regiment is brigaded with the Chasseurs de Afrique engaged in mounted warfare at the Battle of the Marne and after. As 1915 approaches they are dismounted to fight as infantry in Belgium where Dupont takes part in the Battle of the Yser. This book offers a 'snapshot' in time - a view of war in which the writer still dreams of Lasalle and Murat untarnished by the war of attrition to come.
