Publisher's Summary

A riveting account of the hidden war in the mountains and cities of the world's most dangerous conflict and the comradeship between man and dog that has saved numerous lives. 

In Afghanistan, sometimes all that stands between coalition troops and death or serious injury is a dog. Highly trained dogs and their handlers search for improvised explosive devices or hidden weapons out on patrol with combat troops. It's a perilous job, often putting them right in the firing line and making them high-priority targets for the Taliban insurgents they're fighting. 

Shane Bryant, a former Australian Army dog handler, has spent four years in Afghanistan working with elite American special forces alongside his faithful dog. War Dogs is his story.

A good book

Great story describing some troubling times, good insight into what the dogs and handler got up to. Great job by all, but the narrator doesn't convincingly swear, a minor point.

Heartfelt and eye opening

Thank you for writing and sharing your story, those of your mates, and especially the dogs. The dogs deserve so much more from us. Thank you for your service and their service as well.
