Description Description

First published eight years ago to enthusiastic reviews and critical acclaim, this classic celebrated readable scholarship is now available in paperback. Telling the story of the mounted riflemen in Sinai and Palestine, Devil's on Horses uses the soldiers' original letters and diaries to describe the crucial battles against the Ottoman Turkish Forces. The horses play a major part in the story, but of the thousands of faithful animals involved, only one would ever return home. By then the war was over and the Turkish Empire had been destroyed. The Anzac soldiers and their horses had played a vital role in securing the victory.
