Publisher's Summary

Pigeons carrying vital messages to and from the beleaguered city during the Siege of Paris; horses and mules struggling through miles of fetid mud to bring ammunition to the front in the Great War; dogs sniffing out mines for the British invasion force in the Second World War: countless brave animals have played their part in the long, cruel history of warfare. Some have won medals for gallantry. Too many others have died abandoned, in agony and alone, after serving their country with distinction. Jilly Cooper pays tribute to the role of animals in wartime with a collection of stories from the tragic to the hilarious, which illustrate how important "non-human combatants" have been throughout the history of war.

Animals in War.

I thought this was pretty good but I thought it could have included much more and been written better than what it was.
