About War Horse
“…In effect, a horse’s eye view of the First World War—heart-rending in Black Beauty tradition, anti-war like All Quiet…, certainly unusual and dramatic..”
– Kirkus Reviews
“War Horse,” a children’s novel penned by Michael Morpurgo in 1982, recounts the compelling tale of Joey, a horse requisitioned by the British Army during World War I. Joey’s journey unfolds from his idyllic life on an English farm to his service as a cavalry steed on the Western Front and culminates in his reunion with his owner, Albert, who has enlisted to search for him.
Narrated by Joey in a straightforward style accessible to young readers, the book delves into multifaceted themes encompassing the grim realities of war, the profound human-animal bond, and the dire consequences of conflict on soldiers and civilians.
A notable facet of “War Horse” is its capacity to humanize the animals that played pivotal roles in the war. Through Joey’s perspective, Morpurgo provides a unique glimpse into the equine experience amidst the horrors of war, shedding light on the fact that animals were integral to the conflict, serving as transportation, weaponry, and even soldiers.
The enduring connection between Joey and his original owner, Albert, forms another central theme. Despite the vast expanse of battlefields that separates them, Joey’s unyielding devotion to finding Albert reinforces the enduring love and loyalty shared between humans and animals.
In sum, “War Horse” is a touching and contemplative novel that employs the lens of a horse’s narrative to explore profound and universally relevant war-related themes. Suitable for readers of all ages, it promises to leave an indelible mark on those who delve into its pages.
