Channel 4 - War Horse: The Real Story (2012)



Information
War Horse: The Real Story
The truth about the million British horses that served in World War I is even more epic than Steven
Spielberg's War Horse feature film. This documentary tells their extraordinary, moving story,
begining with the mass call-up of horses from every farm and country estate in the land. Racing
commentator Brough Scott tells the tale of his aristocratic grandfather General Jack Seely and his
beloved horse Warrior, who would become the most famous horse of the war. The British Army hoped its
illustrious cavalry regiments would win a swift victory, but it would be years before they enjoyed
their moment of glory. Instead, in a new era of mechanised trench warfare, the heavy horses
transporting guns, ammunition and food to the front-line troops were most important. A quarter of a
million of these horses died from shrapnel wounds and disease. But the deep bond that developed
between man and horse helped both survive the hell of the Somme and Passchendaele. Behind the lines
an army of vets worked miracles to treat injured horses and keep them going. The finest hour of the
cavalry came in spring 1918 when - led by the warhorse Warrior - they checked the German advance
before going on to help win the war. But there was further heartache when the war ended. Eighty five
thousand of the oldest horses were sold for meat to feed POWs and the half-starved local population.
Half a million horses were sold to French farmers to help rebuild the countryside. Only 60,000 made
it back to Britain. Six of these horses would pull the body of the Unknown Warrior to its last
resting place in Westminster Abbey.
