I want a dog! Well, I have always wanted a dog, but this book made me want a dog even more! These stories are so inspiring. I want my parents to read this book, so they will want to get a dog too!

The biggest question is: What was my favorite story? Because, this book was a bunch of short stories about dogs and their handler. All these dogs are amazing. My favorite was definitely Smoky. Smoky is adorable. By the way, Smoky is a yorkie! There is a picture in the book! It is really cute because Smo

A great nonfiction book all about military working dogs. It focuses on ten main dogs in particular and their stories of service, but in so doing gives a chronological history of dogs in United States combat from the Civil War to modern conflicts. I found most interesting the discussion over the controversy "Should a dog get a Silver Star?" After Chips, in World War II, was given the Silver Star and the Purple Heart, complaints led to a law being passed that from then on no medal meant for humans ...more

"Bonded by Battle" is a captivating book about many faithful dogs and their handlers who worked together to protect soldiers' lives during a variety of wars. Each chapter is a different story about a dog, his handler, and the specific war in which they served. Nancy Roe Pimm also provides information about the history of dog's receiving medals and/or awards and the laws today. Children in grades 4-7 would find this book captivating and helpful in understanding the important of dogs in the milita ...more

I gave this book all five stars as it was very well written; detailed, educational, and interesting from page 1 to the very last page. If you love dogs this is a must read, as it shows you just why "Dog" is "Mans" "Best Friend" that no "Human" can ever match.
