Abstract

Animals are still fighting and suffering in war. Though written for children, Michael Morpurgo’s best-selling book, War Horse, helps us understand the massive loss of animal life in the history of war. Dr. Delano Proctor also shares his experience as a veterinarian treating horses in India during World War II.
