Sgt. Reckless: America's War HorseSgt. Reckless: America’s War Horse by Robin Hutton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you love horses, you’ll love this book. If you love stories about war heroes, you’ll love this book. If you love the Marines, you’ll love this book. Sgt. Reckless is a horse, a war hero, and a Marine who served in the Korean War.

Purchased by Lt. Eric Pedersen from a race track in Korea, this gutsy little mare was trained to do what no man could do, carry heavy loads of ammunition to the front lines up the rugged Korean terrain. She was a remarkable animal who never gave up. She carried ammunition to the guns, and wounded back to the base. Reckless kept going, under fire and wounded herself, even without a human to lead her.

But the bulk of this story is about her life after the war. What she meant to the Marines who loved her, admired her, and fought beside her. How she touched lives long after the shelling stopped. Well done, Reckless. Well done.
