In a spectacular evocation, the spectator is swept into the whirlwind of recent history, and discovers that, despite the incredible revolution of military means in a century, the values of service and duty remain at the heart of a timeless commitment. From cavalry on horseback to contemporary armored vehicles, this show will be the opportunity to discover 200 years of equestrian and military tradition of the city of Saumur and to evoke as well the recent or current commitments as the memory of heroic acts that have marked the history of the cavalry. At the end of the great chronological fresco, dynamic presentations of historic armored vehicles from the Saumur Armor Museum's collection, the modern means of modern cavalry and the Army are also presented and put in context.
This 170th edition will be especially the occasion to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Europe.
