Today I published in my section "Protagonists of the Franco-Prussian War" a photograph of a Zouave during the siege of Strasbourg 1870 (from the collection of Louis Delpérier).

The reason of publication is the myth of "brutal cats" of the Zouaves which I read in a German memoir and made some research. You find the final text at link (maybe the Google translation link upwards of the page could be of help)
