Jet the Rescue Dog - David Long
Jet the Rescue Dog and Other Extraordinary Stories of Animals in Wartime by David Long is uplifting and deeply moving. It tells the stories of these brave, silent heroes with sensitivity and gentle humour for readers age 8+. As mascots, messengers, rat-catchers and even spies, animals have long marched into war alongside servicemen and women. Dogs, horses, cats (even birds, camels and elephants) have saved thousands of lives through instinct, intelligence, courage and devotion. Like Jet, a dog who searched through ruins during the Blitz bombings to find survivors, or Sergeant Stubby, a dog who caught a spy. Or the pigeons who braved hurricanes, hawks and even snipers to help during WWII. With black and white illustrations throughout.
