In the final volume of her "Warhorse" trilogy, Ann Hyland deals with the emergence of the modern cavalry horse in the seventeenth century, possibly the single most significant development in the history of the warhorse. From this development followed all the familiar modern roles of the horse in battle, most notably the cavalry charge. This fascinating and lavishly illustrated book contains reproductions of paintings, photographs, maps and drawings, which allow a clear reconstruction and exploration of the role of the warhorse in the Napoleonic wars, the Crimean War and the First World War. With vivid reminiscences and moving firsthand accounts of those who took part in the later campaigns, "The Warhorse in the Modern Era" will have a strong appeal to both modern military historians and those interested in the rich and varied history of the horse.
