Between 1939 and 1945, Europe endured the biggest conflict the World has ever seen.

On June the 6th 1944, also known as the D-Day, the Allies launched Operation Overlord, which had the initial plan to capture Carentan, Isigny, Bayeux, and Caen, and effectively led to the liberation of France, and the successful invasion of German-occupied Western Europe, opening way to what would later be the total victory of the Allies.

The Battle of Carentan took place between 10 and 15 June 1944, in the vicinity of and within the city of Carentan, France. It was held between airborne forces of the United States Army and the German unified armed forces.

The capture of Carentan was one of the most important moments in the battle of Normandy, for it removed any danger that the Germans might have been able to destroy the isolated Utah beach head because it allowed the closing of the gap between the Utah and Omaha beachheads, the last gap between the D-Day landing zones.

Throughout the World, "equestrian statues" (horsemen riding their horses) and also "equine statues" (riderless horses), have been raised as tribute to war heroes.

For "equine statues", there is even a legend that tells about the faith of their rider, and it goes like this :

  • If all four hooves of the horse are on the ground, the general survived battle and died at peace in his home.
  • If one leg is raised, it means the general was wounded in battle or died of battle wounds.
  • If the general died on the battlefield, the statue will have the horse with both front legs off the ground or perhaps one front leg and one hind leg raised.
