St. Martin's Books-War Dogs. Under the cover of night, deep in the desert of Afghanistan, a US Army handler led a Special Forces patrol with his military working dog. Without warning an insurgent popped up, his weapon raised. At the handler's command, the dog charged their attacker. There was the flash of steel, the blur of fur, and the sound of a single shot; the handler watched his dog take the bullet. During the weeks it would take the dog to heal, the handler never left its side. The dog had saved his life. Loyal and courageous, dogs are truly man's best friend on the battlefield. While soldiers may not always feel comfortable calling the bond they form love, the emotions involved are strong and complicated. Author: Rebecca Frankel. Softcover, 272 pages. Published Year: 2015.
