Jet the Rescue Dog : ... and Other Extraordinary Stories of Animals in Wartime Hardback
by David Long
Illustrated by Peter Bailey
As mascots, messengers, rat-catchers and even spies, animals have long marched into war alongside servicemen and women.
Dogs, horses, cats (even birds, camels and elephants) have saved thousands of lives through instinct, intelligence, courage and devotion.
Like Jet, a dog who searched through ruins during the Blitz bombings to find survivors, or Sergeant Stubby, a dog who caught a spy. Or the pigeons who braved hurricanes, hawks and even snipers to help during WWII...Engaging, uplifting and deeply moving, Jet the Rescue Dog tells the stories of these brave, silent heroes with sensitivity and gentle humour for readers age 8+.
With black and white illustrations throughout.
