Book Review: War Horse

A very nice review was just published on my book, War Horse, in the most recent Society of Military History’s Journal of Military History.  Though I won’t reproduce the whole review here, the bottom line from the reviewer, Catharine Franklin:

… War Horse is an excellent book. In addition to its coverage of military topics, it explores the physical characteristics of horse breeds, the training of horses and riders, and the evolution of horsemanship. Historians of both ancient and modern warfare will find this text of interest, as it attests to the complexity of cavalry actions and considers current trends in military history. Those who love horses will, like this reviewer, be heartened by the book’s focus on the horse and the author’s steadfast assertion of the horse’s selfless service in war.
