''War Horse'' takes place in 1914 during the outbreak of WorldWarOne in Great Britain. It follows the life of a young foal, Joey, and his initial interactions with his owner, Albert Narracott, the son of a drunk who spent nearly double the estimated value on the horse at an auction. (''39 Guinea!'') [[ABoyAndHisX A bond swiftly forms]] between Joey and Albert as he cares for and trains Joey to farm life. However, when a badly-timed rainstorm takes out the farm's yearly crop, Albert's father is forced to sell Joey to the military in a desperate attempt to pay the rent. Joey departs for the war in France, with Albert promising [[IWillFindYou to find him again when the war ends]].

* AnalogyBackfire: The English commander brings up Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg as an example of why a full on charge works, the only problem is that Pickett's charge ''failed spectacularly''[[note]]The Union forces didn't have machine guns that day, but they ''did'' have ''plenty'' of cannons which Confederate artillery had failed to silence[[/note]]. Also doubles as ForeShadowing.
