Inhaltsangabe

Deep in the British Library tucked into the slipcover of a book on the history of Blenheim Palace a packet of extraordinary letters has been discovered. "Dear Marengo brackets Napoleon's horse close brackets, I've never written a letter like this before…." Thus begins the first passionate letter from Copenhagen, the Duke of Wellington's horse, to his hero Marengo in this epistolary equine love story. A story of two horses united by an uncommon passion, cruelly divided by a brutal conflict.

Warhorses of Letters stars Stephen Fry as Marengo, the seasoned, famous and just-a-little-bit-short mount of Emperor Napoleon. Daniel Rigby stars alongside him as Copenhagen, the frisky young racehorse who as our story begins is about to be the new mount for the Duke of Wellington. This collection of their moving letters to each other is introduced by Tamsin Greig.

Written by novelists Robert Hudson (The Kilburn Social Club) and Marie Phillips (Gods Behaving Badly - soon to be a feature film starring Christopher Walken and Sharon Stone), directed by Steven Canny and produced by Gareth Edwards.

Hilarious and Wonderful

Really, I can only recommend Warhorses of Letters. The epic Napoleonics through the eyes of two gay horses. I was bending over with laughter and thoroughly enjoyed the audiobook. Stephen Fry is great as Marengo the experienced charger. The idea in itself was ingenious. It happens rarely that I pre-order a book, but after the audio-experience I did...even two with the second to be given away to one of my best friends (and another lover of horses and good tales) at Christmas.
