The author of the ‘War Horse’ Michael Morpurgo wrote the story in 1982 and which became a best seller, the story was adapted as a stage play by Nick Stafford. Morpurgo had the idea of the story came after meeting a World War I veteran who drank in his local pub at Iddesleigh and who had been in the Devon Yeomanry working with the horses, Morpurgo started to develop the a story of universal suffering of the Great War through a horses’s viewpoint, quite understandable this was quite a tough task and Morpurgo met two other very important contributors to the book, another villager Captain Budgett who had been in the Cavalry in the great war and a third villager who recolected the army originally visiting the village to buy the horses.

Morpurgo decided he could and did indeed believe he could write this story however through the eyes of the horse, let the horse tell the story and let the story of war come through the soldiers, British soldiers first then through the eyes of the Germans. The story really started to build some depth when a French family also became involved, the horse spends winters with them, and this way we start to see a fuller picture of the true suffering of the First World War through the people on all sides.
