  • This monument to General Charles Mangin, is the President-Mithouard behind the St. Francis Xavier church square, side Avenue de Breteuil. It is in a small square shaded, which highlights. This general was in Africa, commanding the Senegalese Tirailleurs, during the campaigns of the Sudan and the Congo from 1898 to 1900. In 1901, he joined the Tonkin. With Lyautey, he took part in the conquest of Morocco in 1912 and takes Marrakech. It does not leave indifferent by his strong character, his qualities as a strategist and leader of men. He is active in the war of 1914-1918 as a general with such African troops. He stands during the fighting on the Marne and Verdun in 1916. Commanding the VI th army, he gets a lot of success. He disagrees with Pétain, who launches mass, very deadly assaults for troops French. In 1918, with the artillery, he invented the "fire rolling" technique, with great success. In 1918, it participated in the battle of the Marne and repel the German army. After the victory, he became Mainz, with the General Fayolle as early as 1918. He died in 1925. A first monument, by Maxime Real Del Arte, place Deny Cochin, is destroyed by the resentful Germans in 1940. That which exists today, is the work of sculptor Raymond Martin, in 1954. The General appears standing, in motion, air haughty and proud, the sword to the left, arms crossed, wearing a cap with leaves of oak trees. The bronze statue, is placed on a base of granite red, he even placed on a wide and tall tapered base of same material. The whole is surrounded by blocks connected by a thick chain. Many inscriptions are carved on the vertical base and the base station. On the front "MANGIN 1869 1925 and 5 stars"; The weapon of the General facts are engraved on the rest of the monument. This removed enough monument of the "square" of generals, the place Vauban, remains discreet. It is accessible by the metro station "Saint Francis Xavier" line no.13, bypassing the Church.
