Top Customer Reviews
To quote from the book, "By 1946 military brass had decided to stop recruiting dogs from the civilian population....The war dog program fell into chaos and the Quartermaster Corps declared that it was discontinuing forever the K-9 Corps." This points out the absolute stupidity of "authority." If you read this book you will be uplifted with a loving emotion and learn why dogs are so effective in war and then discover the total stupidity of those bound to stop such an effective program. It is beyond human comprehension. You will enjoy this book!
"Putney's book is an up-close view of the hell of war that William Tecumseh Sherman described. It's also the heartfelt evidence of the bonding between man and dog and the mother of all the heroic dog stories you've ever heard." --LEATHERNECK
"I can scarcely remember ever being so taken with a book as I was with Always Faithful." --ELIZABETH MARSHALL THOMAS, author of THE HIDDEN LIFE OF DOGS
"Always Faithful is a powerful tribute to the bond between the marines of WWII and their dogs, told by the author who experienced it firsthand." --DOG AND KENNEL
"A unique animal and war story, this memoir is a tribute to all who cherish the loyalty and bonds that dogs give their owners." --LIBRARY JOURNAL
