War Rabbits: 

The Story of the Rabbit in the First World War (Paperback)

War Rabbits Book FRONT COVER v.4 (1).jpg
By Lesley Hordon

The nation needs more Rabbits.


At the onset of the war younger rabbit fanciers enlisted. Older fanciers struggled to keep rabbit shows going, and started breeding rabbits for meat. As German U-boats sunk merchant ships, home food production had to increase, and the government promoted rabbit breeding. This is the story of the rabbits of the First World War. Published 2018.
