The Winter Horses by Philip Kerr

From New York Times bestselling author Philip Kerr comes a breathtaking journey of survival by one girl and two horses in the dark days of WWII.

It will soon be another cold winter in the Ukraine. But its 1941, and things are different this year. Max, the devoted caretaker of an animal preserve, must learn to live with the Nazis who have overtaken this precious land. He must also learn to keep secrets-for there is a girl, Kalinka, who is hiding in the park.

Kalinka has lost her home, her family, her belongings-everything but her life. Still, she has gained one small, precious gift: a relationship with the rare wild and wily Przewalskis horses that wander the preserve. Aside from Max, these endangered animals are her only friends-until a Nazi campaign of extermination nearly wipes them out for good.

Now Kalinka must set out on a treacherous journey across the frozen Ukrainian forest to save the only two surviving horses-and herself.

This sensitive, inspiring tale captures the power of sacrifice and the endurance of the human spirit.

While the occasional scene keeps tabs on Albert as he fights in the trenches, Joey is Spielberg's star and guide. The director made this point loudly at a recent press junket , where he spoke about his approach to War Horse 's source material, a children's novel that was later adapted into an award-winning play. Asked a few questions about World War I and violence in war movies, Spielberg let fly:. Watching War Horse , you can see what he was talking about. Spielberg conveys violence without depicting it: an officer charging into battle juxtaposed against a rider-less horse leaping over entrenched German guns, a pair of deserters executed at the precise moment a windmill blade hides their bodies from camera's view.
