Synopsis

This title presents dedicated mailing and e-mail campaign to targeted history media and organisations.For over 3,000 years, the horse and rider have been an integral part of warfare. Understanding the employment of the military horse is key to understanding the successes and the limitations of military campaigns throughout history.In "War Horse", DiMarco discusses all of the uses of horses in battle, including the Greek, Persian, and Roman cavalry, the medieval knight and his mount, the horse warriors - Huns, Mongols, Arabs, and Cossacks - the mounted formations of Frederick the Great and Napoleon, and unconventional fighters such as American Indians, the Boers, and partisans during WWII. In addition, the author examines the training and equipping of the rider and type of horses used as military mounts at different points in history."War Horse" is a comprehensive look at this oldest and most important aspect of military history, the relationship between human and animal, a weapons system that has been central to warfare longer than any other.
