"Great story, well written about a little known aspect of WW1"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Was fascinated to read this story about Caesar the dog. What a shame more is not published about these unsung heroes we know so little about. I will always have another dimension in my mind as we celebrate Anzac day in the future and also remember the very brave dogs and horses who were such a vital part of the success of our troops at war. Thank you for writing this wonderful story. It's a shame it had such a sad ending, but Caesar will always be remembered by all who read this book.

Description

When the New Zealand Rifle Brigade marched down Queen Street to board their transport ship to Egypt and the Western Front, they were led by their official mascot, a bulldog called Caesar, wearing a magnificent studded collar. One of those in the crowd who waved him farewell, and who gave her favourite hair ribbon to Caesar's handler, her uncle Tom, who tied it to his collar, was four-year old Ida, who had played with Caesar and loved him a member of the family. What happened to Caesar is told in this charming and poignant story of a little known aspect of the First World War by Ida's daughter, Patricia Stroud, who grew up with the family tales of Caesar and Uncle Tom's amazing heroism on the Western Front. Trained as a Red Cross Dog, Caesar rescued wounded soldiers from the hell that was No-Man's-Land at the Battle of the Somme. A superb and sensitive true story about the courage and loyalty of a dog and his handler, only one of whom survived. Ages 10+
