Description
 

At a time when every American was called upon to contribute to the war effort—whether by enlisting, buying bonds, or collecting scrap metal—the use of American animals during World War II further demonstrates the resourcefulness of the U.S. Army and the many sacrifices that led to the Allies' victory.

Authors Toni M. Kiser and Lindsey F. Barnes deftly illustrate that every branch of the armed forces and every theater of the war utilized the instincts and dexterity of these dependable creatures, who though not always in the direct line of enemy fire, had their lives put at risk for the jobs they performed.

"In the frightening and uncharted world of war, servicemen and women could count on the transport given by horses and mules, the protection offered by dogs, the communication delivered by pigeons, and the solace provided by mascots and pets."—from Loyal Forces

[Hardcover, 192 pages, Toni M. Kiser (Author), Lindsey F. Barnes (Author)]
