Item description for Rags: The Dog Who Went to War by Jack Rohan...

This is the true story from the First World War of Rags, the amazingly clever terrier. It is a tale of devotion, courage under fire, and astonishing canine intelligence.

A hungry and homeless stray is stumbled over one dark, foggy night in a Paris alley by a lost soldier A.W.O.L. The noise alerts the Military Police and the soldier, Donovan, quickly talks his way out of a tight spot by claiming he is on a mission to find his division's dog mascot, and as they were leaving next day for the Front he didn't have time to get a pass. As the canny dog co-operatively plays along, Donovan is believed, and the terrier he names 'Rags' becomes mascot to the U.S. First Division.

Rags repays Sergeant Donovan's and the Army's kindness many times over. As well as being a devoted friend, he undoubtedly saves many men's lives. His alertness to the sound of approaching shells warns of danger, he delivers vital messages, alerts stretcher bearers to the whereabouts of the wounded, and with his friendly, cheeky nature bucks up many a flagging soldier.

While delivering a crucial message at the Argonne Campaign, Rags is nearly killed: his gas mask is ripped off by the force of an explosion and he is badly gassed. He is also blinded in one eye by shrapnel, his ear is mangled, and his paw wounded. However, Rags still gets the message through, collapsing into unconsciousness on arrival.

This is Rags', the amazing terrier's story during the war and afterwards as he achieves celebrity war dog hero status.

Reviews - What do customers think about Rags: The Dog Who Went to War?

a remarkable dog  Jul 27, 2005
I love dogs, so I should never be surprised to hear of a dog's intelligence or character, but this dog, Rags, really takes the biscuit. He was truly of a kind, and got up to all sorts of scrapes and mischief. Amazingly astute, clever, cheeky, friendly, faithful, persistant you name it....and a multiple life-saver too. Buy this book, you'll love it.
