Overview


Man's best friend goes to war.

LOYALTY ABOVE ALL ELSE.

Andrew believes in the importance of loyalty. He is loyal to his family. He is loyal to his hound dog, Dash. And he is loyal to his country, the Confederate States of America.

Although he's too young to join the Confederate Army, Andrew is welcomed into the Home Guard, a group of men who track down deserters and runaways. He and Dash make a great team. But hunting people is very different from hunting raccoons. And soon Andrew's loyalty will be tested like never before.

Dog Tags is a series of stand-alone books, each exploring the bond between soldier and dog in times of war.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
Andrew is a twelve-year-old boy who deeply believes in loyalty. Andrew is loyal to his family, his hound dog named Dash, and the Confederate States of America. Living in Meridian, Mississippi, Andrew is too young to go off and fight for the Confederacy like his older brother, Julius, has already done. Instead he and Dash help the home guard patrol the area searching for deserters and generally enforcing what they viewed as the law. While working with the home guard Andrew comes to question the correctness of taxing poor farmers, shooting deserters, and generally oppressing the local population. Then word comes to Andrew’s family that Julius is missing in action. With Yankee soldiers marching through the surrounding countryside, Andrew takes Dash and goes in search of his brother. When the two brothers meet Andrew is surprised by what he learns from Julius about the true nature of war. This lesson is reinforced by subsequent battlefield experiences that reveal to Andrew that fighting is not what he thought it would be and that all life is fleeting. As part of the “Dog Tags” series Divided We Fall concentrates on the impact warfare has on young people. As with other books in the series, canine companions play a leading role in the narrative. Through sometimes grimly realistic descriptions of combat, readers are given a fair picture of what it means to be a soldier. While there are several plot artifices that are at best coincidental, Divided We Fall tells an interesting story and one that will cause its readers to reflect on their own beliefs. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck; Ages 10 to 14.
