In military conflicts around the world, these unsung heroes have proved themselves time and again, and many have won decorations for their acts of bravery. From dragging wounded soldiers to safety to detecting a trip wire as thin as a hair or tracking the enemy back to a hideout, dogs have played a critical role in military conflicts and saved countless lives. The heroes honored in this volume include the "kamikaze" attack dogs used by Russia's Red Army to destroy the invading Germans' tanks, the heroic Airedale Jack who saved an entire British battalion during World War I, the parachuting dog who made more jumps during World War II than any man, and the American war dogs that saved as many as 10000 lives during the Vietnam War. Starting with early warriors and moving through Allied dogs and American mascot dogs of World War I; para pups, anti-tank dogs, and defense dogs of World War II; the collection ends with scout dogs and other dog stories of the Vietnam War.
