Jet The Rescue Dog by David Long cover

Subtitled ‘And Other Extraordinary Stories Of Animals In Wartime,’ Jet The Rescue Dog features over thirty tales of bravery from dogs, birds, cats, donkeys & horses, and even a Russian bear, who helped save countless military and civilian lives during wartime over the past century.

Mainly focussing on World Wars I and II, these are charming and thrilling stories that highlight he bond between humans and our domesticated pets.

Told simply and with little hyperbole are the tales of Rob – the dog who joined the SAS, pigeons Gustav or Kenley Lass, the pet-rescuing terrier Tipperary Beauty, and the bomb-carrying bear Voytek.

Fittingly closing with a piece on the Animals In War memorial in London, Jet The Rescue Dog’s stories are rarely short of incredible and warm the heart.
