Yep, there's a dog on the cover, and it's (sort of) a WWII story, so it MUST be on the Rebecca Caudill list. This is actually one of the few dog stories I've seen on that list where the dog DOESN'T die, so don't be faked out by that, everyone. Overal ...more

Fans of DK’s Eyewitness series of books will devour this one. It’s laid out similarly, with extremely attractive visual spreads accompanied by short blocks of text, many of which are in sidebars or diagrams. Great for browsing or as a starting point ...more
