Some war heroes stood tall . . . on four legs!
Graphic novel adventure stories based on real uses of dogs in the military in WWI, WWII, and Vietnam.

 

“Loved it . . . Anyone who can enjoy a crackling good story will enjoy these three tales about the bonding of men and dogs in war. The author’s exploration of World War I, World War II, and Vietnam is fascinating.”
Walter Dean Myers, National Ambassador of Young People’s Literature and award-winning author of Sunrise Over Fallujah, Fallen Angels, and Monster

“Through vivid, realistic illustrations and a compelling story, Dogs of War helps the reader understand both the horror of war as well as the companionship that brings people through it.” —Trent Reedy, acclaimed author of Words in the Dust

“In this much-needed addition to historical graphic fiction for young readers, Keenan and Fox have crafted three gripping, atmospheric, and heartwarming stories about man’s best friend and how they provide companionship and solace from the harsh realities of war.”Scott Robins, co-author of A Parent’s Guide to the Best Kids’ Comics: Choosing Titles Your Children Will Love
