Tommy's Ark

Soldiers and Their Animals in the Great War

Richard van Emden

As well as the mascots, carrier pigeons and horses used by the army during the First World War, all manner of animals provided solace and interest for servicemen. Quoting letters, diaries and memoirs, van Emden follows the course of the war year by year, describing soldiers' experiences with animals, from entraining heavy horses in Birmingham to birdwatching at the front; and he also surveys the state of wildlife on the ‘murdered earth’ of the Western Front.
