Canine Commandos

By Nigel Cawthorne

Emotionally powerful stories celebrating the extraordinary military missions and achievements of man’s best friend


From Labrador Retriever Cooper, who relentlessly searched out bombs in Iraq until he was killed together with his handler by an IUD, to war dog Cairo, who was part of SEAL Team 6 on the mission to assassinate Osama bin Laden, Canine Commandos tells the harrowing and heart-wrenching stories of history’s most famous combat dogs. Exploring the increasingly important role military dogs play in modern warfare, this book reveals how their contributions have evolved over time into the essential jobs they perform today.
