Sgt. Reckless: America’s War Horse

This book tells the inspiring story of an unlikely hero, a Mongolian mare named Reckless. Named after the gun she was recruited to carry, Reckless became an integral member of the Marine 5th Regiment that fought during the Korean War. Her bravery during intense battles and sly sense of humor off the battlefield made her a favorite among the troops. She is the only horse in military history to become a Marine Sergeant and to win two Purple Hearts.

In Sgt. Reckless, Robin Hutton provides an important overview of an often forgotten war, through the unique experiences of a beloved war horse.
