5.0 out of 5 stars A story of Love, Bravery & Loyalty, 7 Jun 2012
This review is from: Soldier Dog (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
"Soldier Dog" is a children's novel that is based on a true story. It is the story of a boy soldier, set during the dreadful times of World War 1 around 1917. It is a clever piece of fiction that is historically accurate. From the brilliantly poignant front cover picture, inside to the comfortable to read typeface, you will be drawn in from the start and will not be able to put the book down.

This book is aimed at Children / Young Adults, but I believe is one to be enjoyed by any age. I think that the youngest age to read this would be around 12 - 13 years.

The story starts with the subject character, Stanley, at home in Lancashire. The reader is given an overview of his life there and as the story unfolds, the reasons Stanley has for wanting to join The British Army and go to fight in France. You will go with Stanley through his training. Your heart will go out to him and his comrades as they progress on their journey to fight this terrible war. You will applaud their bravery and you will be amazed at the war animals - dogs and horses alike.

The fact that the story is based on actual events of World War 1 makes the reader realise just how much we all owe to those soldiers. Just how much we owe to all the military of wars both past and present.

I do not wish to give you all the details of the story, as to do so will spoil your read. Just trust me that this book is exceptional, a brilliant read.
