Item description for Only A Dog: The True Story of a Dog's Devotion to His Master in World War One by Bertha Whitridge-Smith...

This is a touching true story from the First World War, retold through the dog's eyes. A terrified stray Irish Terrier find himself trapped in 'No Man's Land' near the trenches of Flanders, unable to move due to his wounds. A British sniper sees the injured dog, and risking his own life, crawls out to carry the terrier to safety. He then insists on taking the dog to a nearby Hospital, where he persuades the already overworked and stressed surgeon to operate on the dog's injuries.

From that time on, the terrier christened 'Army' and the British soldier become inseparable. When the soldier dies, Little Army is inconsolable and remains by his master's grave, refusing to leave. There he stays, comforted only by the smell of his master's trench coat which is given him to lie on and keep warm. This is Army, the faithful Irish Terrier's story.

Soldier and Dog now lie side by side at Armentieres in Flanders.

If you love dogs, this will make you cry. It is a lovely story but so very sad. And it is true. Everyone I know who has read this book thinks it is a classic and they admit also to shedding a tear or two....
