    War stories make me sad as do some animal stories so when I started to read this book I had in mind that I might not be able to finish it. Sure, not all the the animals mentioned had a happy ending however the author did not dwell too much on these facts so I was able to get through it. That someone has written about and remembered these brave animals makes this book worthwhile reading.

    While I appreciate the important role animals have played in our armed forces, this book did not captivate me and I did not think it was written well.
