War Horse Chapter 8

By Michael Morpurgo

Chapter 8

  • "The bedlam of battle had begun" (8.3). Horses and men fall on both sides of the battle.
  • The English forces are decimated, and Captain Stewart and Trooper Warren are taken by the Germans as prisoners of war.
  • Topthorn and Joey are taken as P.O.W.s, too. Warren gives Joey one last stroke before he says goodbye, and we reach for tissue number two.
