About this book

Published in association with the Imperial War Museum, to coincide with their major exhibition, and including a foreword by Jilly Cooper. From the First World War to the present day, animals have played a key part in warfare – and many have suffered and died as a result. Juliet Gardiner's book is a moving tribute to their efforts and sacrifice – illustrated with hundreds of evocative photographs and paintings. Many different animals have played a role on the battlefield – horses and mules carrying supplies and munitions; dogs, like Buster in Iraq, seeking out ammo dumps; canaries trained by tunnellers to detect gas; carrier pigeons sending messages, like Gustav who flew back with the first reports of the D-Day landings; camels used in the Arab Revolt in the First World War; and dolphins trained to protect submarines.
