The Horse Book : Horses of Historical Distinction Hardback

Description

Hardworking, swift, loyal and capable of great heroism, horses have been our constant companions for thousands of years.

Using stunning illustrations, The Horse Book pairs famous historical figures with their faithful mounts including: Alexander the Great's beloved steed at whose death he dedicated the city of Alexandria Bucephala; the cruel Roman emperor Caligula who made his horse a consul; the brave horses in the First World War; and horses of famous figures from El Cid to Napoleon.

This is the perfect gift for the horse lover - a guide to the role of horses in history and the people who rode them.
