Abstract:

"There have been dogs on battlefields for thousands of years, but the first modern canine to be recognized as a full military partner by those with whom she served was a Civil War terrier. For four years this small bundle of fur and fire witnessed the horrors of war in some of the most remembered battles in history, and like the nation it changed her. In fact, from mascot to messenger to scout to sentry to sniffer, being in the line of fire dramatically transformed all the canines profiled in this book. It was that transformation that is the foundation for each of these remarkable and inspiring stories"--Introduction.
