Off Featured of "Le petit journal" in 1870...
A small presentation today of the Prussian cavalry in 1870 ...
The FPW marked the end of the cavalry used in large heroic charges.
It is most often used in the context of recognition or avant-garde.
On 24 July 1870, Count Zeppelin offers himself a 40km ride inside the French lines,
it will be noticed by the french autority the next day!
