A recent story in London's Daily Mail brings together disparate threads of a shared history. The newspaper story can be found here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2049362/Steven-Spielberg-film-The-war-horse-Germans-kill.html.
The article covers a lot of ground, dealing as it does with Steven Spielberg's upcoming movie, "War Horse"; Michael Morpurgo's book of the same name; and the smash London hit now playing in New York and soon in Toronto that grew out of it. The main focus of the story, though, is on the role played by Warrior, Brigadier Jack Seely's charger during his days in command of the Canadian Cavalry Brigade.
Seely told Warrior's story many years ago, but the book has been reprinted, edited by Seely's grandson, Brough Scott.
"Warrior: The Amazing Story of a Real War Horse".
