“False horse” comes from the term of a camouflage method that was used by French soldiers during World War I against Germany. As the story goes, during the war which went on for years the terrain between two sides, so-called no man’s land, came to resemble a barren, post-apocalyptic wasteland. The challenge was to sneak out as close as possible to the enemy’s side to observe, spy or place a sniper without being seen while everything around them was obliterated until the entire landscape was just a flat expanse of charred dirt and corpses. The French soldiers had an idea to disguise themselves as a dead thing. So they built hollow papier-mache replica of the dead horse that was shot a few days before on the terrain between two sides.
