An odd question, but one that I've always wondered. Just Who was "The German Horseman" leading the marching German troops through the Arc de Triomphe in Paris? It is an iconic photo that is immediately recognizable by all, but who was the mounted German in the lead? Some have said it was General Kurt von Briesen, and he was, indeed, famously photographed on horseback receiving a salute from the troops, but the German Horseman of Paris is certainly not him, so who was he? Has he ever been identified?
