Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Solidly researched…and effectively illustrates a meaningful relationship in which a special dog helped a soldier ‘see beyond the horror and uncertainty of combat to the beauty of just being alive.’” Publishers Weekly
“Is the appeal of this book greater for dog lovers or military-history buffs? It’s a toss-up, because the book’s charm simply radiates off the page in all directions…This very engaging book serves as a tribute to canine courage and devotion.” Booklist
“Once again, Stubby trots forward to serve the men of the 102nd. Bravo, Sergeant Stubby!” Michael E. Shay, author of Revered Commander, Maligned General
