Told for the first time, here is the story of a stray dog
who eventually became affectionately known as Sergeant Stubby, the most
famous war dog of World War I. Beloved award-winning children’s author Ann Bausum brings her friendly writing style and in-depth research to her
first book for adults.
Stubby’s story begins in 1917 when America is about to enter
the war. A stray dog befriends Private J. Robert “Bob” Conroy at the
Connecticut National Guard camp at Yale University, and the two become
inseparable, eventually crossing an ocean and going to war together. What
follows is an epic tale of how man’s best friend becomes an invaluable soldier
on the front lines and in the trenches, a decorated war hero, and an
inspiration to a country long after the troops returned home. Download and start listening now!
