Military working dogs gained widespread attention after one participated in the SEAL Team Six mission that led to Osama bin Laden’s death. Before that, few civilians realized we had dogs serving in combat, let alone that they could parachute from up to 30,000 feet. And as astounding as that is, it’s only one of the many things our four-legged soldiers can do.

In this book, Lisa Rogak shows the amazing range of jobs that military working dogs perform, such as explosives detection, patrol, and hunt for enemy combatants. Dogs have had a place in the military for decades, but their importance and our treatment of them has evolved over time. Rogak examines the training, equipment, and what it’s like to serve with them on the front lines.

The Dogs of War also tells heart-warming stories of the deep connections that grow between dogs and their handlers. And Rogak recounts adventures both heroic and tragic of the courage and devotion that both human and canine soldiers have shown together on the battlefield.

An incredible story of a largely unseen but vital role that dogs play in our armed forces, The Dogs of War is a must-read for animal-lovers everywhere.
