Dogs of War looks at three dogs who participated in military service during World War I, World War II, and the Vietnam War, as well as the impacts they had on their owners. "Boots" takes place during World War I, with a dog who was involved in the famous Christmas truce between the British and German soldiers. "Loki" is a sled dog in Greenland during World War II, where he helps his trainer survive being tracked by Nazis. The final story, "Sheba," shows how the dog helped troops detect Viet Cong threats and the impact on her trainer after he was sent home without her and is trying to recalibrate to normal life. Each of these stories highlights how dogs are helpful to soldiers as comfort and battlefield support, and dog lovers will especially enjoy this aspect of the graphic novel. The art supports the narratives well, with a good attention to the details of body language, though action scenes can get a little confusing. Reviewer Goldsmith agrees that the art is strong, stating, "Fox's beautiful, detailed, and deeply colored imagery excels in depicting riveting soldier and dog lives in these varied conflicts and landscapes." There are of course instances of violence, due to the nature of the book, but it treats the subject realistically and is free of language or other concerns.

What more would I have to say to make anyone want to pick this book up? But, if you insist. This book is about three dogs that served in the war and saved/helped their owners in battle. The first dog goes by the name of Boots and she finds wounded soldiers on the battlefield and reports back to the medical team. Once they have been alerted to the injured soldier, they grab a stretcher and follow Boots to the person. They pack him up and bring him back to the trenches for medical support. The next warrior is Loki. A dogsled trained hound that is used to bring Greenlanders across the dunes of snow. Loki and his trainer spotted a plane that had crashed landed. As they rush to the wreck, they find a pilot that is severely wounded and needs a medic immediately. They pack him up on the sled and just as they were arriving back at H.Q. he wakes up and starts saying the name of a mystery item that you will have to read to find out what it is. Last but definitely not least we have a scout dog that goes by the name of Sheba. This hound has saved and been saved by her owner many times. She is very key to the last story and it really makes you open your eyes to what war is really like and what it does to people. I definitely recommend this book if you have not read it yet. (These stories take place in WWI, WWII, and the Vietnam War. No dogs/animals die in this novel.)

This graphic novel features the stories three dogs and the wars they were a part of: World War I, World War II, and the Vietnam War. We meet Boots and his owner, a young boy who is an unofficial med tech. They find soldiers still alive, so they can be treated and rescued.

In this final story we also meet a young boy and his dog, who help heal this wound. I wanted to love this book, I really did, but I think students will be a bit lost. The first story was incredibly confusing, the artwork adding to the complexity. The role the heroic dog played was only briefly mentioned, the plot centering around the boy instead. The second story was ok but didn't really convince me the dog was a hero, more of moral support. The final story was heartbreaking and the easiest to understand of all three. I was bawling. I wonder though, if students will understand it, as much of it had to do with the stigma of the war, and PTSD. Maybe a teacher could bring these to life better than a student reading on their own.

    This book has 3 interesting stories about dogs that were in wars. I rate to read this book, because you know more about history. It's kind of sad for the dogs (I almost cried), because they have to survive in the wars. When you read it you kind of know more about that wars are very sad...But it was very very interesting how they survive and that they travel allot.

    Not bad for a graphic novel! The drawings were great. Each of the three stories told in this book was great. I like how the author would make a connection between the dog and the person in every story. I also liked how the author would take his time and split the book into three sections, to explain each dog in the book. Overall, the good was good.

    I loved the way the author guided me into a realm of war including hospitality. I also love the fact that these three war dogs were not supposed to be close to the veteran, but in the end they were best friends. I highly recommend this book for anyone in the eighth grade and up!

    I should have known that a book with dogs was going to make me cry. I liked the structure and the format of this book. I thought the three different wars, from three different perspectives, through the lens of soldiers with dogs was a great idea. The art in this was sharp and beautiful. It has a diverse range of characters -- no female soldiers though which I would have liked but given the three wars featured -- WWI, WWII, and Vietnam -- it makes sense.

It has a diverse range of characters -- no female soldiers though which I would have liked but given the three wars featured -- WWI, WWII, and Vietnam -- it makes sense. Also, the last story was a good introduction into PTSD. Given that this is a Scholastic book, it's for kids and I think it had a nice balance between the harsh realities of war and the effects of it, while still showing the comradeship of the soldiers and their dogs. It wasn't a true five star for me because it was a little slow at parts, which seems weird from a graphic novel that had three short stories within it. But, I call it as I see it. And sometimes I was rushing through the novel to get to the next plot point. Overall, it's a great book. I am glad I have it and can share it with young graphic novel enthusiasts. Conclusion: keep, but might give away to share with another reader

    This is a graphic novel, so the pictures carry much of the narrative. There are three separate stories of dogs who served heroically in three different wars. Since it’s written for children (and my eight year old grandson recommended it), I was glad to see no dogs died in this book. But war in all its coarseness and violence is vividly displayed; the pictures are brutal and the conversation between soldiers is aggressive and harsh.

    5 stars for the subject matter 🐕, but 3 stars for the execution. This graphic novel style isn't my preferred style and with so many action images (depictions of war), it was somewhat hard to follow. My favorite story was the one about Sheba / Vietnam War, perhaps because the action was told more through flashbacks with narrative and therefore easier to follow. We have this classified in the J graphic novels, I may recommend to move it up to the teen section. 5 stars for the subject matter 🐕, but 3 stars for the execution.

    Dogs of War was a great book! It showed how dogs were very important in battle. I liked how the author put in three dogs in three different wars to show the job of each breed of dog and their connection to there owner. I would recommend this book to people who like war stories and dogs.

    I really enjoyed this graphic novel (Technically it is a collection of three graphic short stories, but whatever...). The art work is very good and the stories are compelling, particularly the WWI story. All three stories incorporate a lot of accurate historical details that were fascinating.

    My opinion of the book Dogs of War is that the book has nice pictures and good stories of the dogs that were in war. I would recommend this book to someone who likes to read graphic novels and likes dogs. My favorite passage from the book is when the character and his dog Loki are about to get spotted by the enemy and they have to sneak through the window and run away.

    A non-fiction book is a book that contains true information on the world or may talk about different parts of history. Non-fiction books can also just state facts, like National Geographics books, which talk about random facts.

Dogs Of War by Nathan Fox is a non-fiction book about 3 different dogs (Boots, Loki, and Sheba) in 3 different war including WW1, WW2, and the Vietnam war. Each war has a different kind of dog and tells its qown unique story. The chapters in this book go by story so in this book, there are 3 chapters. Also, below each chapter heading, there is a map showing were they are because you might need it to understand the book. Lastly, in the book, there is a table of contents, which tells the page each dogs adventure starts. I think this book was a well organized and planned out book, really trying and succeeding in engaging the reader, because I know I never wanted to put down Dogs of War the minute I started it. I though it was a very informational but fun book to read. I thought this book was a very interesting book to read because i love learning about different wars and I love graphic novels and comics so a non-fiction comic about war dogs was very appealing to me. I think the author knows a lot on these wars but I think some parts of the book were a little exaggerated and a little unrealistic. I think Nathan Fox takes side with America and that America and its allies are the "good guys" and Germany, Vietnam, etc., are the "bad guys". I know someone could argue that America is the bad guy and Germany is the good guy. I think people can take away a lot from this book like information on WW1, WW2, and the Vietnam war, what dogs are capable of doing during war, and the bond connecting dogs and human beings. I think the actual stories were amazing and told well but I think a lot of the info may have been based off an alike story, but definitely a bunch of parts were a little exaggerated. I can see why a lot of people may think non-fiction is boring and i think a lot of it is to, but just because in fantasy anything can happen, just think about the amazing true non-fiction stories that did happen! I have to rate this book 4.5 stars because i thought it was an amazing book, but some parts i thought were a little far fetched. I think anyone who likes comics with action or someone who likes learning about wars should read this book.

    The professional review: Military history, a variety of international settings, and animal adventure combine to tell three stories of working dogs during three different wars in the 20th century. We meet Boots - a mercy dog in World War I, Loki – a sled dog at an intelligence station in Greenland during World War II, and Sheba – a scout dog during the Vietnam War.

The r The professional review: Military history, a variety of international settings, and animal adventure combine to tell three stories of working dogs during three different wars in the 20th century. We meet Boots - a mercy dog in World War I, Loki – a sled dog at an intelligence station in Greenland during World War II, and Sheba – a scout dog during the Vietnam War. Each story explores a different aspect of wartime, as well as (to varying degrees) some of the controversial issues of each war. The relationships between the dogs and the humans who work with them are affecting, and while the illustrations look overly busy at first glance, the textures and colors work well to tell each story in turn. Readers looking for animal-based stories, history lessons, and military settings will eat this book up. This will be a great addition to library graphic novel collections for young readers. When I get candid: I avoid dog stories as a rule. As a dog lover, I hate the omnipresent moment where something bad happens to the dog. I also tend to avoid military stories in my personal reading, for a variety of complicated reasons. But I got this book as a must-read-and-review during a stint getting five books at a time in the mail to review for a professional source (this was also the time period when I read The Empty City). So I didn't have a choice. And, although I didn't like the bad parts, and had low expectations based on the my lack of having heard of the authors in the GN world and my first glance reaction at the illustrations, I was pleasantly surprised. I thought it was really smart that they chose distinctly different roles for each of the dogs, that the relationships between the soldiers and the dogs were different, and that the story flowed so well. If this wasn't already getting some attention (http://sheilakeenan.com/high-fives-to... and I'm pretty sure I've heard a few more not in that list), I'd probably booktalk it (probably to middle schoolers, aiming low, but it would work to handsell to upper elementary too). Instead, I'll give myself a high-five for making it through both a dog book and a war book. :) --- Edit to add: I did end up booktalking this in January 2017, and it was hot hot hot. :)

    I received a free copy through NetGalley. "Dogs of War" shares three stories of canines and their masters during times of war. The dogs highlighted are: Boots, a World War I medical dog; Loki, a sled dog used during World War II; and Sheba, a scout dog utilized during the Vietnam war.

The stories different time periods and dogs help keep the story varied while still having that single link between them being a focus on dogs of war. The book starts out with what is probably the strongest of the bunch in Boots. Set in the trenches of WWI, Boots and his master Marcellinus are responsible for venturing out and locating injured soldiers. The story focuses a lot on the soldiers interactions with each other with Boots' story being more of the footnote that holds them together, but this doesn't detract from the dog theme. The story packs a "Band of Brothers" type punch as well with some great emotional content. The second story following Loki has the feel of a Jack London adventure story. Loki is a misfit among the other sled dogs and must work to prove himself. The third and final story integrates its war stories through flashbacks about Sheba's exploits in Vietnam with her handler, who after the war is having trouble coping and returning to society. The collection as a whole is very solid. The pacing and variety of the stories is fantastic and the art supports the story very well. People looking for stories that focus solely on the dogs may be disappointed in some instances where the canines take a backseat to their human counterparts, but overall, the book is very enjoyable. Also of note is the further reading and author's note section that go into the true, historical aspects of the story.

    Three short stories about war dogs in WWI, WWII, and Vietnam. I enjoyed the last story about Sheba, a german shepherd war dog, that saw combat in Vietnam. The story is told thru the eyes of Vietnam Vet, Lanford, who befriends a little teenage boy learning to care for his own little puppy. The little boy, Henry strikes up a conversation with the vet, and Lanford tells about his war dog, Sheba. They both form a close bond as Lanford shows Henry how to train his dog, offering this bit of advice: "T Three short stories about war dogs in WWI, WWII, and Vietnam.

A dog gets used to a little something for doing something, and he'll do nothing when you got nothing." Henry quickly realizes that Lanford suffers a great deal from the mental scars the war left behind. Henry knows little about Vietnam and is eager to ask Lanford all kinds of questions, but because of Lanford's short temper, Henry decides to just listen to the vet tell his war stories. Lanford explains that soldiers followed orders no matter how ambivalent they were about them. Lanford: "Next day you'd get up and start walking all over again." Henry: "Where were you going" Lanford "Forward. That's all we usually knew. As Hado said, we were just bunch of U's: The Unwilling, Led by the Unqualified, Doing the Unnecessary For the Ungrateful." Recommend this to reader interested in dogs and war history. The story is told in detailed color and black and white illustrations that go well with the storytelling.

    This book is truly phenomenal, it is both heartbreaking and empowering at the same time. The artwork through three chapters by Nathan Fox (with the ample assistance of two colorists) makes the images of dogs, men, and war practically leap off the page.

The reality of mud embedded within the trenches of WWI, the infinite amount of snow throughout Greenland during WWII, and the immense saturation caused by the jungles of Vietnam has never truly appeared as vividly as it does in this comic book/graphic novel. The three stories written by Sheila Keenan, plus the brief author's/artist's introduction along with the very short afterword/further reading section, make this book a compelling piece of art that everyone, not matter how old they are, should read. "Dogs of War" bring the truth & horror of modern ground fighting into the light... there are n punches pulled here, the fear you see & experience in the eyes of these characters will be felt inside your own mind before you reach the last page. I'd like to give this book my highest recommendation, and I would gladly endorse it to any teacher wanting to expose their students to the history of war in the 20th century.

    This book tells the story of three "war dogs" from WWI, WWII, and Vietnam. If not for the last story, this is just a 3 star for me. The Vietnam story was a perfect way to end because it focused on the pain and brutality of war and how a dog can act as both a brother in arms and a therapeutic companion. The author and illustrator did an amazing job of adding layered meaning to this book. The first two stories: 3 stars. The last story (Vietnam): 5 stars.

    war stories in general, not so much, but i am a real sucker for a good dog story, and i've been a fan of Nathan Fox's work for years. so i figured i would enjoy this comic. but it exceeded my high expectations. i was moved to tears by all three stories in this impressive comic book about friendship, humanity and true bravery.

    Graphics are not my forte, as I repeatedly mention, but I feel bad scoring them since I have such a difficult time. I really liked the premise, but the first story had very difficult illustrations for me to follow. The other two were better. I think any teen that has an interest in dogs or war will love this.

    Good fun read with all the fun illustrations! Entertaining and interesting read. This book was a moderately easy read because it was a graphic novel with multiple pictures on each page. I would recommend it to high school and middle school students. Definitely a good summer reading choice!
