National Geographic tells the story of a stray dog who becomes Sergeant Stubby the War Dog during World War I. Beloved award-winning author and library darling Ann Bausum brings her friendly writing style and in-depth research to her first-ever book for adults. 


Stubby's story begins in 1917 when America is about to enter the war. A stowaway dog befriends Private James Robert Bob Conroy at the Connecticut National Guard camp at Yale University and the two become inseparable. Stubby also wins over the commanding officer and is soon made an official member of the 102nd Infantry of the 26th division. What follows is an epic tale of how man's best friend becomes an invaluable soldier on the front lines and in the trenches, a decorated war hero and an inspiration to a country long after the troops returned home.


For those who loved New York Times bestseller Rin Tin Tin comes the memorable story of Sergeant Stubby—World War I dog veteran, decorated war hero, American icon, and above all, man's best friend.

        Comments about Sergeant Stubby:

        Very readable book about WW1 and a stray dog that won the hearts of the men of the 102nd infantry. Good detail and a lot of photos. This book holds a special place for me since I had a relative in the 102nd and probably knew Stubby.

        Move over, Rin Tin Tin. Here comes Sgt. Stubby! That German shepherd star of the silver screen may have been born behind enemy lines during World War I, but Stubby, the stump-tailed terrier, worked behind enemy lines, and gained military rank and honors along the way. Private Robert Conroy casually adopted the orphan pup while attending basic training on the campus of Yale University in 1917. The young recruit never imagined that his stray dog would become a war hero. He just liked the little guy. When Conroy's unit shipped out for France, he smuggled his new friend aboard. By the time Stubby encountered Conroy's commanding officer, the dog had perfected his right-paw salute. Charmed, the CO awarded Stubby mascot status and sent him along with Conroy's unit to the Western Front. Sgt. Stubby's brave deeds earned him a place in history and in the Smithsonian Institution where his stuffed body decorated with war medals can still be seen. Even 100 years later, Sgt. Stubby's great deeds and brave heart make him an animal hero to remember and treasure.

        In the spring of 1862, many Americans still believed that the Civil War would be over by Christmas. The previous summer in Virginia, Bull Run, with nearly 5,000 casualties, had been shocking, but suddenly came word from a far away place in the wildernesses of southwest Tennessee of an appalling battle costing 23,000 casualties, most of them during a single day. It was more than had resulted from the entire American Revolution. As author Winston Groom reveals in this dramatic, heart-rending account, the Battle of Shiloh would single-handedly change the psyche of the military, politicians, and American people—North and South—about what they had unleashed by creating a Civil War.
