This article isn't to recount the story of the tragedy and the 23-year history of cover-up -- which is very ably documented elsewhere on the internet. But to flag the names of some of the most loathsome people in this dreadful saga. And to call for them to be belatedly held to account.

Michael Giltz

War Horse is based on the novel by Michael Morpurgo, a solid young adult novel with classic status in the UK. It was turned into a brilliant bit of theater (really, you should see it if at all possible). But Spielberg's film fails on every level.

She took my elbow, escorting me around... she told me she must show me the blue room, or some room or other as I voiced my confusion over no ice cubes in the gin and tonics. She must have thought me an idiot.
