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.
