Review: Darling, a rambunctious family dog, is drafted to serve in the British Army during World War I. Told from the dog's point of view, the book offers a unique look at the lives of both two-footed and four-footed soldiers fighting at the front. Darling is trained as a Mercy dog, a dog trained to find injured soldiers, race back to their handler, and then lead the rescuers to the injured soldier. Darling's story focuses on bravery, sacrifice, and devotion - a wartime adventure with plenty of heart.
