The Horse Soldier (Rebuilding the Past) by Martin Windrow

No other animal has been as closely woven into the long adventure of human history as the horse.The Horse Soldier looks at the horses central role in over three thousand years of human warfare, from Ancient Greek times through to the First World War, and its eventual replacement by the tank. Detailed information on the life and equipment of horse and rider -- from a Cromwellian Ironside to a French hussar in the 1812 retreat from Moscow, a Mongol archer to a US Cavalry trooper fighting the Cheyenne in 1876 -- is accompanied throughout by superb color illustrations. A gripping slice of history, told with passion and pity. -- The Guardian (England
