War Horse Chapter 16 Summary

How It All Goes Down

  • Two soldiers—one from each side, British and German—wave white flags and approach Joey, who is stuck in the middle of the trenches. 
  • These guys have an incredible conversation about war and what it's really all about. If you read one chapter in War Horse, this is it. (But read them all—you'll be happy you did.) 
  • They flip a coin to decide who gets to take Joey. The English win, and take Joey away to safety.
