DOGS OF WAR is a graphic novel that tells the stories of the canine military heroes of World War I, World War II, and the Vietnam War. This collection of three fictional stories was inspired by historic battles and real military practice. Each story tells the remarkable adventures of a soldier and his service dog and is rendered with fascinating and beautiful detail, bringing to life the faithful dogs who braved bombs, barrages, and battles to save the lives of countless soldiers.
Based on the real-life roles of military dogs that served as Red Cross rescuers, messengers, scouts, search-and-rescue teams, sentries, and mascots, DOGS OF WAR captures both the adventure and the devastation brought on by war, as well as the celebrations of life and friendship between boys and their dogs.

In one of this graphic novel’s three short stories, Henry, a lonely African-American boy, befriends a Vietnam vet named Lanford. With difficulty, Lanford tells Henry about Sheba, his scout dog patrol mate. “Army rules,” Lanford recalls bitterly. “Dogs are equipment, like your gun or your ammo.” All three of the story’s dog heroes make it through combat alive, as do their handlers. Yet Keenan (Greetings from the 50 States) doesn’t flinch from the terrors they face, and neither does Fox’s traditional comic book–style artwork. The first episode is set during WWI, as a 16-year-old orphan and his border collie survive trench warfare; the second follows new recruit Cooper and feisty Husky Loki as they are chased by Nazis through a blizzard; the third belongs to Lanford and Henry (and Sheba). All are crammed with action and emotion. Ages 8–12. (Nov.)
