More About Reckless by Tom Clavin
 
 
 
Overview
From the "New York Times"bestselling coauthor of"The Heart of Everything That Is," comes the unlikely story of a racehorse who truly became a war hero, beloved by the Marine Corps and decorated for bravery.
Her Korean name was Ah-Chim-Hai Flame-of-the-Morning. A four-year-old chestnut-colored Mongolian racehorse, she once amazed the crowds in Seoul with her remarkable speed. But when war shut down the tracks, the star racer was sold to an American Marine and trained to carry heavy loads of artillery shells across steep hills under a barrage of bullets and bombs. The Marines renamed her Reckless.
Reckless soon proved fearless under fire, boldly marching alone through the fiery gauntlet, exposed to explosions and shrapnel. On some of her uphill treks, Reckless shielded human reinforcements. The Chinese, soon discovering the bravery of this magnificent animal, made a special effort to kill her. But Reckless never slowed. As months passed, the men came to appreciate her not just as a horse but as a fellow Marine."
