Was the German Army the highly efficient mechanized force that conquered Europe and nearly the Soviet Union? Were they fighting the WWII with transportation technology little better than that used by Napoleon? Was the extensive use of horses by the Wehrmacht a reflection of poor logistical planning, or the only possible response to the requirements of the strategic planning by Hitler and his staff. DiNardo Brings scholastic rigor to those and other questions in this very readable book. I feel that is a must read for no other reason, that his substantial bibliography supplies the reader with multiple avenues to expand their own research into the how’s and whys of the need for the German military to organized their logistic train with both the state of the art, and the huge numbers of horses that were vital to the war effort.
As an aside, I stumbled on the book while conducting a Kindle search for “War Horse”.
