Warrior: The Amazing Story of a Real War Horse by General Jack Seely

Model Number: 9781908216236

£9.99 GBP
On 2 September 2014, Warrior was posthumously awarded the Dickin Medal, known as the animals' Victoria Cross for gallantry. Named in honour of Maria Dickin who founded the PDSA, the UK's leading animal charity, Warrior is the first animal to be honoured from the First World War.

Warrior is the true story of the thoroughbred horse General Jack Seely took to France in 1914. It tells the extraordinary tale of how they both survived five years of bombs and bullets to lead a cavalry charge in 1918 before returning home where they rode on together until 1938, their combined ages (70 + 30) totalling 100.

The book covers Warrior's life from his birth on the Isle of Wight to his amazing feats as a famous war horse and how a combination of both the horse's extraordinary character and some unbelievable twists of fate, helped him survive as war which claimed the lives of eight million horses.

Originally published in 1934 as My Horse Warrior, this new paperback edition is introduced by Jack Seely's grandson Brough Scott, a well-known broadcaster and journalist. It includes the original illustrations which equine and war artist Sir Alfred Munnings drew especially for Jack Seely both during the war and at home afterwards.
