This was an excellent read. highly recommend it to horse lovers. Story shows how the love for horses can over ride politics and nationality.

Well-paced history that successfully juggles several narratives to tell the story of dedicated efforts to rescue the Lipizzaner of Vienna and champion Polish Arabians from the invading Russian and German armies.

It may be the first time the "full" story is told, but the tale has stayed with me ever since I saw the 1963 movie, The Miracle of the White Stallions - even drawing me to spend hours in the mid-70's watching practices at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miracle_of_the_White_Stallions
