This is a book about horses and the role they played in the most difficult of wars. Recording their journey has often been overlooked, or simply forgotten. It tracks their departure from ship to shore – from paddock to Pretoria and beyond.

You will gain an insight into the many facets of animals at war and in doing so will help preserve their important story which has formed part of our Colonial heritage.
