Lunéville: une garnison de cavalerie dans l'espace frontalier lorrain, 1873-1921. Représentation et évolution d'une division de cavalerie aux avants-postes

Abstract : Closely connected to the history of Lorraine, Luneville is marked by its famous riding tradition as early as the eighteenth century, in particular from its final attachment to the kingdom of France in 1766. Gradually established as a model cavalry town, Luneville appears after the 1870-1871 war as a major cavalry garrison in the outpost of the annexed Lorraine. Somewhat far the civil and military life of this town, the new border between the French Republic and the German Empire was then the subject of much attention until the end of the First World War. As part of the works on the military history of France in general and the history of the French cavalry in particular, a specific study on the 2nd Cavalry Division and its units stationed in Luneville from 1873 to 1921 offers the opportunity to identify the garrison life of this Lorraine cavalry town in a period comprised between two chronologically post-conflict reconstruction phases between France and Germany. By addressing the subject from the history of events as well as the history of representations viewpoints, this thesis also highlights the major contribution of the garrison to the technical and tactical developments of the French cavalry, and to the life in a Lorraine specific town.
