War Dogs: Author Rebecca Frankel Shares Her Favorite Books About Dogs in the Military

Rebecca Frankel is the senior editor for special projects at Foreign Policy and author of WAR DOGS: Tales of Canine Heroism, History, and Love. In this piece written exclusively for, Frankel discusses seven titles from her very own “War Dog library” that delve into the history of military dogs. She emphasizes that some of these selections are “wonderful books about dogs where war dogs may not be the focus of the narrative, but they still cover the rich terrain of the topic beautifully, even if only briefly.”
