Summary
2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of WWI. This book celebrates the achievements of a stray dog, Stubby, who became the mascot of the 102nd Infantry Regiment Yankee Division. Stubby wandered into a military training camp at Yale University and befriended James Robert Conroy who was later stationed in France. Over time, Stubby became "Sergeant Stubby" complete with ID tags, gas mask, and military coat decorated with authentic patches and medals.
Critique
A famous little dog almost forgotten about in the archives of the Smithsonian. For dog lovers and/or military-history buffs.
