"Military historian, [Neil] Storey's Animals [in the First World War] offers a pleasing mix of horses and dogs in action and posing with their owners, and even some refugee rabbits and a goose escaping -the Gallipoli peninsula. The brief but detailed work will be great for reports (the quality indexes help in this regard); a comprehensive introduction and four to eight chapters...comprise a useful overview, and those who want to explore further will appreciate the further-reading and places-to-visit lists. Attractive, informative, and approachable." --Henrietta Verma, Library Journal
