Dogs of War

By: Sheila Kennan and Nathan Fox
Location: GRA KEE
Genre: Graphic Novel- War

Some war heroes heard the 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 - It is going to be a sad office this week as my colleague says goodbye to her dog, I had that trauma last year. We had our dog for 17 years, the memories, fun, mischief and company of Rex is incomparable. My life never depended on my dog though, but he added bucket loads to it- I tell you that dog could sing- yep sing- he probably though would be useless at war!

DOGS OF WAR is a graphic novel that tells the stories of the canine military heroes of World War I, World War II, and the Vietnam War. This collection of three fictional stories was inspired by historic battles and real military practice. Each story tells the remarkable adventures of a soldier and his service dog and is rendered with fascinating and beautiful detail, bringing to life 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 served as Red Cross rescuers, messengers, scouts, search-and-rescue teams, sentries, and mascots, DOGS OF WAR captures both the adventure and the devastation brought on by war, as well as the celebrations of life and friendship between soldiers and their dogs.
