The book reminded me of “All Quiet On The Western Front.” The emotions and experiences of the characters are so very relevant to today’s situation in Iraq.
It is a poignant reminder of the ugliest nature of history repeating itself at the expense of the naive and guileless young.
I found A Red Horse Rode Out to be a fine character-study of how young soldiers become indoctrinated into the ways of war, be it World War One, or current conflicts notwithstanding.
A Red Horse Rode Out is first-rate historical fiction depicting a turning point in not only the lives of young men, but that of a young America.
From M.K. Eissler
This book starts out a little slow, but gains momentum. It tells the story of the real Lost Brigade of WWI. I learned American History at the same time I was entertained. The ending was quite emotional.
