Dogs on duty : soldiers' best friends on the battlefield and beyond

Image of item
Book
Few people know that canine soldiers are responsible for some of history's most spectacular victories and rescue missions. With senses far more acute than their human counterparts, dogs can smell explosives, hear enemies when they're still miles away, and lead patrols safely through utter darkness, guided only by their remarkable sense of smell. This moving tribute to "a soldier's best friend" is filled with photos of combat dogs leaping from airplanes, Navy Seal shepherds swimming through water with spy cameras mounted on their backs, and famous hero dogs who won medals in both World Wars and in Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq. Finally, military dog trainer Dorothy Hinshaw Patent shows what it takes to create these canine commandos, following their training from puppyhood to the fields of battle.
