Military working dogs gained widespread attention after Cairo participated in the SEAL Team 6 mission that led to Osama bin Laden's death. Before that, few civilians realized that dogs served in combat, let alone that they could parachute from thirty thousand feet up.
The Dogs of War reveals the amazing range of jobs that our four-legged soldiers now perform, examines the dogs' training and equipment, and sets the record straight on those rumors of titanium teeth. You'll find heartwarming stories of the deep bond that dogs and their handlers share with each other, and learn how soldiers and civilians can help the cause by fostering puppies or adopting retirees.
An incredible story of the largely unseen but vital role that dogs play in our armed forces, The Dogs of War is a must-listen for animal lovers everywhere.

"The most comprehensive book I have ever read on the subject of military dogs, it exemplifies the indomitable spirit of the dog itself, ever selfless, loyal to a fault." (Steve Duno, author of Last Dog on the Hill)
No, the narrator just makes it so unpleasant.
Since Tuesday, because it also deals with dogs assisting a soldier.
The narrator made me stop listening to the book. I love the content of the book but will have to read it myself.
The sample button has been very helpful to me and I now use it before ordering any book. The right narrator does make a difference. I also like that I can search by narrator. This feature caused me to buy several books which I would have probably not considered if it wasn't for the narrator.
I love Dags. In Nam dogs would work with from time to time, and I have the greatest respect for them and their handlers. I recommend this book to anyone interested in history war whatever. You won't be disappointed.
