Le 47e régiment d’infanterie pendant la Première Guerre mondiale

Abstract : This thesis has two objectives. The first is to show how the regimental monograph is a stylistic exercise to develop knowledge of the French army of 1914-1918. Secondly, and based on the particular case of the 47th IR of Saint-Malo, it will be a question of how the combatants’ professional culture makes it possible to renew the debates related to the endurance of soldiers during the First World War. By this we mean the reading grid reflecting the ability of the poilus to evoke their war experience through the prism of the lexical field of work. After demonstrating the relevance of the regimental level for reflection and defining the sources and method used, the purpose will be to demonstrate what the "profession" of the 47th Infantry Regiment consisted of during the First World War. Finally, it will be a question of recharging the unit's fighting capital, which will become mechanically blunt as the campaign progresses.
