Overview


Man's best friend goes to war.

Two enemy soldiers. One uneasy alliance.

Miguel is a medic in the US Army. Stationed in a remote Belgian forest during World War II, he's expecting a quiet tour of duty. But the Nazis have other ideas. They launch a surprise attack . . . one that separates Miguel from his entire division.

Alone and lost in enemy territory, Miguel discovers an abandoned dog, left behind by German forces. The dog could be just the ally Miguel needs to get out of the forest alive. There's a catch, though. The dog has been trained by the Nazis to see Miguel as the enemy. Can a young soldier teach an old dog new tricks?

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
Miguel is a medic serving in the US Army during World War II. Arriving at the front Miguel is fearful that he will not be able to stand up to the horrible demands of war. It is winter and the men Miguel serves with suffer as they live in foxholes at the front. Then, a surprise German attack devastates the unit Miguel has joined. The Germans have launched a major offensive and triggered what would come to be known as the Battle of the Bulge. Miguel’s unit is overwhelmed and he finds himself with a highly unusual ally in the form of a lost Doberman Pinscher. Miguel establishes a tenuous friendship with this “enemy” dog and sets out on a dangerous journey aimed at saving one of his brothers in arms from the Germans who have captured him. Miguel’s journey takes him into the terrible world of suffering that was created by the onslaught of war. In the end Miguel discovers that the line between friend and foe can be both abundantly clear and extremely vague depending upon changing circumstances. Written as part of the author’s “Dog Tags” series, Prisoners of War is a fast paced, albeit sometimes improbable story that is based on the experiences of an actual combat veteran of the 1944 German attack in the Ardennes Forest. Despite some implausible events the storyline moves at a rapid pace while simultaneously telling a tale that will hold the interest of readers interested in military fiction. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck; Ages 10 to 14.
