"With humor and heart, Kopelman relates how, in the midst of battle in Fallujah, Iraq, his Marine battalion -- the "Lava Dogs" -- saves a starving mutt. Armed with the fighting spirit of the Marines who adopt him, spunky Lava supplies unconditional love, morale boosts, and a great read."--New York Post"Sure to please dog-lovers." - Kirkus Reviews"More than a canine escape tale, this is also the story of how Lava changed Kopelman and affected his feelings about the war."--San Diego Magazine" One of a handful of heartwarming tales to emerge from the war in Iraq."--USA Today"[The Marines] were offered a small, furry ray of hope when they stumbled upon a five-week-old pup that was left behind after the battle of Fallujah. A war memoir with a twist, From Baghdad with Love is the tender story of how a dog named Lava captured the hearts of a bunch of war-hardened Marines and how they banded together to bring him home to America."--Pages (San Diego) "The book deals honestly with the hard question asked by many people about why so much time, energy and money was spent on a dog when there are so many people in need. A fascinating look at the day-to-day life of soldiers fighting for their country, who discover a little bit of hope and love in a dismal time and place."--Readerviews.com "The story of how Kopelman got this puppy out of Iraq was so different from anything I have read anywhere about the war in Iraq that I was on the edge of my seat from start to finish." --Bookslut.com "Love and hope often arrive in the strangest places and in the strangest ways."--Forbes.com "Jarhead with animals."--Palm Beach Post.com "You will laugh, smile, cry, and want to keep turning the page."--BookPleasures.com "Kopelman orchestrated a real-life canine escape from Iraq worthy of any thriller novel." --Petwarmers "What happens next makes for an incredible tale that, say our sources, you can't put down until the last page."

A must read for all animal lovers everwhere!!!!
The true story of a tiny puppy found by Marines abandoned in Fallujah. They called him Lava and put themselves, journalists and Iraqi Citizens at real risk in this tale of their endless efforts to smuggle him out of Iraq to the States.
The description of a little flea-bitten ball of fluff, with the hair on his neck all puffed up to make him look bigger, roo roo roo-ing at the Marines in an act of bravado is really touching.
Lava turned these war-hardened Marines into mushy individuals and guess what, me too!!
