Eight million horses/donkeys/mules died during WWI this is nearly 40% of the death count of soldiers on all sides.
Brave lads. Wonder if any survived this charge?
And 19 Century Warfare meets 20th Century Warfare
In 1887 the Germans adopted the machine gun and had 12000 in 1914.
The French had horses.
By 1917 the Germans had 100,000 and the French had less cavalry …. a lot less!
