Sandy is but one in a long line of four-footed soldiers. The traits of most dogs - extraordinary senses of hearing and smell, loyalty, intelligence, speed, and coordination - have made them of great value to men at war for thousands of years.
From the battles of ancient Egypt to the recent Gulf War, war dogs have been crucial and heroic additions to any armed force. Here, therefore, are exciting stories of heroism and friendship - between humans and their courageous canine companions during wartime.
