Michael Morpurgo's classic tale, capturing the power of the human spirit.
First published back in 1982, War Horse has taken the world by storm. The book was adapted to the stage and was performed at the National Theatre and on Broadway. This full and unabridged edition is beautifully performed here by the National Theatre's first Albert, OIivier-award-winner Luke Treadaway.
At the outbreak of World War 1, Joey, young Albert's beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped to France.He's soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary odyssey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man's land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to the trenches to find him and bring him home.

"The former children's laureate has the happy knack of speaking to both child and adult readers." (The Guardian)
"Champagne quality over a wide range of subjects." (The Daily Telegraph)
Excellent narration, my 10 year old son and I listened to this on the way to and from school, I could hardly wait to pick him up every day so that we could listen to more.
Excellent story to help audiences of all ages to understand World War 1. The narrator is exceptionally talented.
"Sad when story ended"
Wonderful story beyond expectation. Narration is top class and very empathic. I want to listen to the story again immediately. Great production.
