The story of the horses used at Gallipoli during WWI is little known and it will astound most readers to learn that several thousand horses were landed on this mountainous terrain. Here they performed an important role hauling the big artillery guns into position as well as other vital tasks.

The lot of the mules and donkeys was remarkable as well. They laboured hard and long, carrying ammunition, water, food, and medical supplies whilst constantly under fire.

Much has been written about the soldiers, the battles and the human casualties, but very little has been written about the animals that were there, too. This book commemorates their role and preserves their stories in text and many photos.
