Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A trio of stories based upon dogs and the role they played during conflict. The first and by far the best of the stories focuses on the trench warfare of WW1. A young Scottish orphan has enlisted as part of the medical unit who falls in with a bunch of Irish Rangers after a German bombardment. Its a nice tale which incorporates the christmas day ceasefire between the Allies and Germans.

The second tale takes the reader to Greenland during WW2, the American forces having to fend off the German advance. The main character is a dog handler who has to tame an unruly member of the canine sled team.

The third and final story revolves around the nightmares suffered by a Vietnam veteran told mainly through a series of flashbacks mixed with the present day. This was perhaps the weakest of the tales due to the fact that the main character is always angry!

Fair play to both Sheila Keenan and Nathan Fox for the work on show. Keenan takes time and consideration upon the subjest which is matched by some wonderful art by Fox. Full of motion and energy.

This is the perfect graphic novel for anyone who happens to like dogs and warfare, a reminder that a dog certainly is man's best friend. The book itself is smaller than the standard comic size and a little larger to the old style commando comics.

No dead dogs! 18 Feb. 2014
By Nicole Levesque - Published on
Format: Paperback
Dogs of War by Shelia Keenan and Nathan Fox
Scholastic Graphix, 2013
Historical Fiction/Graphic Novel
104 pages
Recommended for grades 4-8

Vivid artwork depicts three short stories about a dog in war. WWI, WWII and Vietnam are explored. Each war has a different breed dog preforming different tasks. But all the stories have one thing in common: dogs and their handlers have a special bond, which is heightened in war zones.
Kids will enjoy this action filled book.

Three brave dogs (and men), three different wars, three good stories for younger readers. 29 Dec. 2013
By W. McCoy - Published on
Format: Paperback
In the graphic novel Dogs Of War by Sheila Keenan, three fictionalized stories of dogs and men in war are told. One from World War I, one from World War II and one from the Vietnam War.

In Boots, we learn about Boots a medic dog in the trenches of France with a young handler. This episode includes the Christmas Eve truce, but then shows how war continues on. In Loki, a dog in Greenland helps to pull sleds and save a soldier from the enemy. In Sheba, a young boy learns about his neighbor who is recently back from the Vietnam War. Sheba was the name of the dog that he was partnered with during the war and had to leave behind "with the rest of the equipment." They are all well told stories and show aspects of how soldier dogs are used and cared for.

The book concludes with a great Author's Note telling more about service dogs. There is a further reading section with more books and movies on the subject. Art by Nathan Fox is good. While the subject matter is for younger readers, the seriousness of war is never diminished, including the consequences of being a veteran in a less than popular war. It's all very well written by Sheila Keenan and I enjoyed these stories of brave men and dogs.

I was given a review copy of this graphic novel by Scholastic Books and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for letting me review this graphic novel.

Thank you Bookish 16 Dec. 2013
By taking.mytime - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is an ARC - sent to me by Bookish.

I didn't think I would like this book..but I fell in love with each story. This book is seperated into 3 time frames..World War I with Boots, World War II with Loki and Vietnam with Sheba, and to be fair, Bouncer. Each story affected me in a different way. The authors notes at the end of the book, sadly, also affected me. Any dog or animal lover would enjoy this book and the factual information it contains. 3.5 stars
By Matthew Purnell - Published on
Format: Paperback
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.
