Sgt. Reckless : America's War Horse
by Robin Hutton and James F. Amos


Overview -
New York Times Bestseller

She wasn't a horse--she was a Marine.

She might not have been much to look at--a small "Mongolian mare," they called her--but she came from racing stock, and had the blood of a champion. Much more than that, Reckless became a war hero--in fact, she became a combat Marine, earning staff sergeant's stripes before her retirement to Camp Pendleton. This once famous horse, recognized as late as 1997 by Life Magazine as one of America's greatest heroes--the greatest war horse in American history, in fact--has unfortunately now been largely forgotten. But author Robin Hutton is set to change all that. Not only has she been the force behind recognizing Reckless with a monument at the National Museum of the Marine Corps and at Camp Pendleton, but she has now recorded the full story of this four-legged war hero who hauled ammunition to embattled Marines and inspired them with her relentless, and reckless, courage.
