The Story

War Horse is the tale of young Albert’s beloved horse; Joey. Sold to the cavalry and shipped to France, Joey witnesses the brutality of World War I from both sides where, even in the desolation of the trenches, Joey’s courage touches the soldiers around him. Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.

War Horse is the powerful story of deep friendship surviving in terrible times – the power of war and the beauty of peace.
