Worth the read just for the pictures of civil war soldiers with adorable white fluffy dogs. I really enjoyed these stories and hearing how much hope animals gave to people during hard times of the civil war. Even before we had formal working dogs there were dogs helping our armed forces. Honestly only wish there was more information and wonderful stories to fill this book. Lovely.

cute stories of canine companions to the troops. Most of them strays, so it was like they knew they were needed somewhere.
