Description

At the outbreak of World War One, Joey, young Albert's beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped to France. He's soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary odyssey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man's land.

At the outbreak of the First World War, Joey, young Albert's beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped to France. He's soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary odyssey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man's land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, although still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to the trenches to find him and bring him home.

Narrated from an unusual perspective, Michael Morpurgo’s classic novel vividly brings to life the sufferings of animals caught up in human warfare.

War Horse has been adapted by the National Theatre to become a hit play and is now being made into a major motion picture by Steven Spielberg.
