Description
Sheila Keenan's captivating stories and Nathan Fox's stunning art bring the heroic military dogs to life

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.
