Product Overview

In Military Horses, children will travel through time and around the world as they learn about horses used in wartime. Rich narrative text details the great, muscular horses that carried knights in shining armor in medieval Europe, and the lightning-quick Arabians horses that carried Tamerlane to victory against the Turkish Empire. Kids will learn which horse breeds are best suited to serve in war, and why a particular breed is useful for different kinds of warfare. Kids also will learn about El Morzillo, a Spanish horse that was worshipped as a god by the Mayans. Detailing hardships and victories, Military Horses reinforces the bond between people and horses.

For thousands of years, horses carried humans into war. Even today, with the use of tanks and other means of transportation, horses still hold an important place in the military. Look inside to learn more about these heroic horses and how they have helped millions of people on and off the battlefield. Book jacket.
