War HorseAlbert had stopped brushing me and dropped the straw on the ground. His mother was standing on the steps by the door of the farmhouse. She had her hand to her mouth. ‘Oh dear God,’ she said softly. ‘Oh dear God.’
In 1914 Joey, a young farm horse, is sold to the army and thrust into the midst of the war on the Western Front. With his officer, he charges towards the enemy, witnessing the horror of the battles in France. But even in the desolation of the trenches, Joey’s courage touches the soldiers around him, and he is able to find warmth and hope. But his heart aches foe Albert, the farmer’s son he left behind.
Will he ever see his true master again?
