Product Description

“Accurate and fascinating” — Kirkus Reviews, April 2017

Since the Civil War, U.S. soldiers and their canine companions have been inseparable. Over time, these dogs have shown they provide more than love. Stubby, a bull terrier in World War I, could sniff out poison mustard gas before any human in his division. Smoky, a whip-smart Yorkshire terrier, ran telegraph wire through no-man’s land in World War II. Nemo, a tough-as-nails German shepherd serving in Vietnam, took a bullet in the eye, yet crawled on top of a gravely wounded soldier to protect him. Other four-footed warriors gave the ultimate sacrifice. This is the story of how dogs and soldiers became more than buddies when they were Bonded by Battle.

Praise for Bonded By Battle

“With machine-gun precision, Nancy Roe Pimm delivers colorful bursts of U.S. war history for all ages. Each chapter is a punchy profile in canine courage and a celebration of the bonds of hard work and sacrifice shared by all those who serve in uniform, whether on two legs or on four.” — Randy Brown, author, Welcome to FOB Haiku: War Poems from Inside the Wire

“Outstanding book! Nancy has captured what it's like for both the dog and handler. It is difficult for a dog handler to express just what transpires between him (or her) and the dog to someone who has never experienced that. Nancy gets it — these are dog TEAMS. The dog and soldier ‘read’ each other and respond to a situation accordingly. This short book is an easy read and can help anyone from 12 to 90 to also get it.” — Darrell Trent, Vietnam sentry dog handler
