|May 15th, 1940|
The success of the Sedan breakthrough on May 13th 1940 surprised the French HQ which didn't expect a major armored offensive through the Ardennes. During the following days, various reinforcements were sent to stop the German forces from plowing into France.
Early in the morning on May 15th, soldiers and panzers from the 1st Panzer Division closed in on the small village of La Horgne, 30 kilometers west of Sedan, expecting little resistance. Little did they know that the 3rd Spahi Brigade, composed of Moroccan and Algerian light cavalrymen were waiting for them. Already exhausted from previous battles, the Spahis are still determined to hold the town at all costs.
