Stubby was a homeless Boston terrier when he adopted enlisted man James Conroy in an Army camp. Their bond was so strong that Conroy smuggled Stubby on board the Army transport. They stayed together in the trenches, where Stubby was adopted by the whole company, and eventually returned home together. Illus. with period photos.

Stubby is a wonderful story not only about the stray dog, and his loving owner but about how Stubby helped in so many ways during WWII. I'm so glad it was saved and written.
