Dogs of war

Sheila Keenan, illustrated by Nathan Fox

Dogs of war is a graphic novel that shares the stories of canine military heroes from the First World War, the Second World War and the Vietnam War. This collection of three fictional stories was inspired by historic battles and real military practice. Each 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 boys and their dogs.
