None Came Home: The War Dogs of Vietnam
by: O'Donnell, John E.

This is the dramatic story of a young American G.I. who finds himself away from home for the first time in the faraway battlefields of Vietnam. Realizing his situation, he encounters a way to better his chances for survival. After a demonstration, the youth volunteers for duty in a very little known unit, the K-9 Corps, and is immediately paired with an equally inexperienced 13-month-old German Shepherd named King. We will follow these two partners through their training, growth, and baptism of fire. The binding devotion and love that grows between this young man and his dog allow them to face the overwhelming odds and obstacles placed before them in their fight for survival and a return passage to the homes they once knew. In a foreign country and climate, boy and dog must face the natural dangers and predators of the jungle terrain, the rainy monsoon season, sweltering heat, and what was considered at the time the "world’s most prolific jungle warfare fighting army on earth." Trust was crucial, for the survival of both canine and human soldier depended on it. As the partnership matures, each soldier’s promise to send the other home provides the foundation for a growing devotion that directs their course and provides the strength to overcome their fears and doubts. This is their story. 182 pgs.
