CAVALERIE FRANÇAISE AU MEXIQUE: Les turcos à cheval (1864-1867)

Interesting article about cavalry in Mexico and how the French mounted the Turcos as a way of compensating for their lack of horse soldiers. And no lancers so 'Major Dundee' lied to us.
Thanks to Charles for sending this image of mounted Turcos by Lelieprve which accompanied the original Carnet de la Sabretache article back in 74.
