Product description


The touching true story of an Irish Terrier's devotion to his soldier master. This is based on a true story from the First World War, retold through the dog's eyes. A terrified stray Irish Terrier find himself in 'No Man's Land' near the trenches of Flanders. A British sniper sees the injured dog, and risking his own life, crawls out to carry the terrier to safety and to get his broken leg mended at the nearby Red Cross Hospital. From that time on, the dog christened 'Army' and his new soldier master become inseparable. When the soldier eventually dies, Little Army is inconsolable and remains by his master's grave all winter, refusing to leave. There he stays, comforted only by the smell of his master's coat. This is Army, the faithful Irish Terrier's story. Army and the soldier are buried side by side at Armentieres near Flanders.
