War Horse by Michael Morpurgo
The story of War horse is a historical fiction( my favorite genre). It is told through the horse's viewpoint. Joey was an English farm horse who was sold to the British army leaving behind the boy he grew up with,Albert. This story vividly tells the roles of the war horse in WWI: an ambulance horse, cavalry, mounted infantry, artillery and others. Along the way, Joey makes lots of friends but still longs for a chance to be reunited with Albert.
" A horse's life may be more valuable than a man's life because a horse holds no evil at his heart"
