Incredible Amazing Book that deserves to be a Bestseller
on 25 October 2011
It's a long time since I've read a non-fiction book that is so completely unputdownable. 'Warrior' is first-hand WW1 history but is so much more than that. It is an incredible account of a man and his horse's experiences on the battlefields of 1914-18 and their against-all-the-odds survival. General Jack Seely writes in a down-to-earth but moving way of the many incidents that made his horse, Warrior, a legend in the trenches. The sensitive illustrations are by the renowned artist, Sir Alfred Munnings who had a huge respect for Warrior. Many accounts of war horses are sad and depressing but this one is not. Warrior's courage, intelligence and his close relationship with Seely, plus at times unbelievable luck, enable their survival and return to the Isle of Wight at the end of the war. This is my favourite book of the year. A 5 star strong buy.
