The War Horse app is available for the iPad and has been developed with Touch Press, the company behind acclaimed apps including The Waste Land and The Elements.
The app features a specially filmed performance of War Horse by author Michael Morpurgo, accompanied by musicians John Tams and Barry Coope. It also features interviews with Michael Morpurgo filmed by award-winning arts media company Illuminations in Iddesleigh (Devon), where the novel begins and ends; historians discussing the First World War from the battlefields of the Western Front; the National Army and National World War I museums; and more.
In addition to the abridged text used for the performance, the original book’s full text is included alongside a full audio reading, an interactive timeline packed with narrated quotes, war videos and artefacts, allowing the reader to delve into the historical background of the story.
