  The Use of Animals in World War I
   
Thursday, March 02, 2017; 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Iowa City/Johnson County Senior Center

Most people are aware of the horrible casualty rates for the soldiers during the trench warfare on the Western Front. What may not be as familiar is the extensive use of animals in battlefield conditions. Horses were used for transportation, to pull artillery and ambulances, and for cavalry charges. Dogs were used as messengers, scouts, sentries, to sniff for poison gas, to carry medical supplies, and to locate wounded and killed soldiers. Pigeons were used to carry messages. So many animals also were killed, and as their monument in London says: "They Had No Choice".

Loren Horton has three degrees in history, including the Ph. D. H has taught at the secondary, post-secondary and "senior" levels for many years.
