Dogs of WarBook - 2013
Some war heroes heard wind whistling over a hidden trip wire.
Some war heroes sniffed out a sniper 1,000 yards away.
Some war heroes stood tall...on four legs!
Dogs of War tells the stories of the canine military heroes of World War I, World War II, and the Vietnam War and of the bonds between soldier and dog. These three fictional stories are inspired by historic battles and real military practices, and are heroic adventures, rendered with fascinating detail, about the faithful dogs who braved bombs, barrages, and battles to save the lives of countless soldiers.
Based on the real-life roles of military dogs that worked as Red Cross workers, messengers, scouts, search-and-rescue teams, sentries, and mascots, Dogs of War captures the devastation brought on by war and the celebrations of life and friendship between boys and their dogs.

Three short vignettes tell the story of three different war dogs and their masters. In World War One, Boots is a "mercy dog," helping to find wounded soldiers in the horror of the no man's land between the trenches. In World War Two, Loki is a disobedient sled dog at an Allied outpost in Greenland. After the Vietnam War, a returned veteran is haunted by memories of his unit, and his dog Sheba - a scout dog trained to alert soldiers to booby traps and ambushes.
