Found this in a $1 per book non-profit fund raising table at my local supermarket. A first edition hardcover about a dog fighing in world war II, with "Horrie the Wog Dog" for its title, and by Ion Idriess too? Here's your $1!!

It's an interesting, quick read, about a company of Australian soldiers who find a stray dog while fighting in the North African campaign. They manage to hold onto the dog through campaigns in Greece, Crete, and the Middle East. Interesting insight into the Greek campaign,

This is a great read. Not only about Horrie but also about the 'ordinary' things in war. The day to day lives of the men. I found the retreat through Greece very interesting. However I'm horrified at the way Australia treated this little hero. It was fabulous to read an original copy. Also loved the photographs

A war tale with a difference! A bunch of Aussie soldiers take on the Germans in Egypt, Greece and Crete with their secret weapon - the wog- dog. Very un PC, but good fun.
