Overview

K-9 Korea: The Untold Story of America's War Dogs in the Korean War by J. Rachel Reed

The men of the 8125th Sentry Dog Detachment had no idea what they would find when their ship docked at Incheon, Korea. The dogs in the unit seemed even more uncertain than the men: they could smell the terror in the place. Almost immediately, these soldiers came to rely on each other—man and dog alike—for safety, courage, and companionship.

Yet in the end, the men of the 8125th could have never imagined the terrible and final sacrifice their canine companions would be forced to make.

K-9 Korea is the heartrending story of American war dogs—the fearless, loyal, forgotten heroes of the Korean War.
