Wow! GREAT BOOK! What an interesting way to teach about WWI, WWII, and Vietnam - animals have always been with man in times of struggle. I often discuss with students how the Russians trained dogs to go after Nazi tanks - this always results in engaged students. The book is sad at times, but always inspiring. I would not recommend under 8th grade due to battle violence.
