The Horse Keeper follows the life of a simple confederate soldier and accompanies him into some of the most terrible battles in history. Detailed accounts of these battles are expressed through his eyes, ears and experiences as sheer horror unfolds around him.

Giving the reader a brutal and emotional history lesson, it also encapsulates the feelings and drama of everybody the soldier shares his experiences with. Meticulously researched facts are woven into its powerful fictional storyline.

A. R. Forte draws inspiration from a number of authors, including Bruce Catton, Shelby Foote, Michael Shaarar and Jonathan Crane. The Horse Keeper will appeal to fans of military and historical fiction.

An ex-Polaris submariner for the Royal Navy, A. R. Forte currently works in security. He is fanatic about thought-provoking satire that forces the reader to think outside the accepted paradigms of society and behave in a manner that does not conform and fit into politically correct machinery. A R Forte lives in Spain. His first novel, Spirits of a Lesser God, was published in 2012 by Matador.
