The story of the famous Waler horses is, in part, recounted in Forgotten Heroes – The Australian Waler Horse, but this book adds new and lesser known detail to the fate of the Waler, including information about the Occupation Forces in Australia during World War 2 and their role in using and providing suitable animals.

The much under-rated mules and donkeys also deserve to be remembered, in addition to the camels which played a vital role in warfare. Thousands of these animals trekked through the mud and slush of France hauling the big guns and carrying supplies.

Likewise, they were an essential part of desert warfare and went about their tasks with courage and resilience, so often badly wounded, but struggling on, delivering vital supplies. They too must have their deeds recorded to never be forgotten.
