    One thought on “Warrior: The Amazing Story of a Real War Horse”

    1. This is the true story of a real war horse, as told by his owner, General Jack Seely I say this to draw the distinction between Warrior The Amazing Story of a Real War Horse and the fictional book War Horse, which is now also a Spielberg film.The story starts with a chapter about Cinderella, Warrior s mother, who was also owned by Seely.This is a very personal record, written by a man who obviously loved horses, and particularly Warrior It was written whilst Warrior was still alive, and includes [...]

    2. A First World War anniversary edition originally printed in 1934 This is a very interesting story of a historical and famous warhorse The illustrations are by Munnings and anyone who knows horses at all knows that name and his famous artwork Not great literature but certainly worth the read for its historical aspect.

    3. You can love horses, but not believe that they have near human intelligence or soul But you can t believe this after reading this book, by a manly English army general on intimate terms with his equine comrade at arms Even if you aren t interested in horses, it s an exciting battle by battle retelling of World War I, reading much like a boys own adventure book which makes it all the remarkable for the depth of love and sensitivity shown towards the book s subject Highly recommended.

    4. The story is told simply in an easy style The recollection of historical events is personal rather than detailed What comes over most is the author s empathy with and a love of horses and his admiration for this one horse in particular though I think Warrior s mother, Cinderella, was one of the great loves of his life One thing I did note was that the horror of the war is largely missing eight million horses died in World War 1 But the book is about Warrior and is worth reading.

    5. Interesting book, written by a British General born in the early 20th century As a horse lover, I wish Seely would have included details about Warrior s training and the way horses were cared for at that time, and during battle But, no point wishing for the impossible A very easy read, and a remarkable story.

    6. Ok there is always the movie War Horse which is pretty awesome, but this is the non Hollywood version of the real War Horse.These animals served with such courage and I can only say that if you love horses, and want to read about the loyalty these wonderful animals showed to their owners in exceptional and very dangerous circumstances, then please give this a read.

    7. Great book Hadn t known much of WWI history so the book was a little confusing at some places, but a good story and storyline Not a gripper, but an enjoyable read with a true backdrop I d suggest this to any horse book lovers.

    8. This book details the life of a horse Warrior that survived frontline action in World War One.The writing is staid lifeless and a bit pompous, but the details of Warrior s life are quite interesting.

    9. Man he loved his horse, was nice to read a bit of fiction and retrace a bit of history only got a 4 from book club.

    10. Very moving story about the relationship between horse and man during war A wonderful read and it also talks about Canadian involvement in some key battles during WWI.

    11. Moving true story of a brave horse and his owner who survived the atrocities of the great war I loved it.
