December 2011 sees the premier of Steven Spielberg's much anticipated film, War Horse, which is the most popular piece of fiction ever written about horses in war. Warrior, first published in 1934 as My Horse Warrior, is equally wondrous fact. It is told by Winston Churchill's great heroic friend, Jack Seely, about the thoroughbred horse he took to France in 1914 surviving five years of bombs and bullets to lead a cavalry charge in 1918 before returning home where they rode on together until 1938, their combined ages (70 + 30) totalling 100. The book tells the whole history of Warrior from his birth on the Isle of Wight to his amazing life as a famous war horse and how a combination of both the horse's extraordinary character and some unbelievable twists of fate, helped him survive a war which claimed the lives of 8 million horses.

This new edition, Warrior -- The Amazing Story of a Real War Horse is introduced by Jack Seely's grandson Brough Scott, a well-known broadcaster and journalist. It includes the original illustrations which equine and war artist Sir Alfred Munnings drew especially for Jack Seely both during the war and at home afterwards. The book includes a reface by Sir Peter O'Sullevan.
