The story in Art.
Horses of the Great War uses a wide range of superb contemporary paintings to explain the contribution of countless innocent horses to the war effort and victory. These works supported by informed commentary tell how the horses were rounded up from all over the world in their hundreds of thousands, how the cavalry halted the German advance in 1914 and again in 1918, how Australian and Indian swept through the deserts of Palestine and Arabia, overwhelming the Turks and performing incredible feats of endurance. The Western Front in France and Belgium relied on horses for supply of everything from shells and ammunition to food and water in atrocious and perilous conditions.
