Book Description Amberley, 2014. Book Condition: New. Thanks to Michael Morpurgo's War Horse, it is now well known that horses were extensively used in the First World War - but so were dogs, camels and oxen, all classified as 'horses' by the British Army for ease of bureaucracy. This historical miscellany reveals hundreds of interesting and unusual facts about the Great War, and includes profiles of key figures and summaries of major events in the conflict.
