"While members of the 102nd Infantry trained at Yale University before embarking for Europe to fight in World War I, soldier James Conroy found a friend -- a stray terrier who soon won the devotion of the enlistee and the hearts of the whole regiment. On the front, where Conroy served as a scout and messenger, mascot "Sergeant" Stubby warned soldiers of incoming gas and helped medics find the wounded. In this engaging biography of a man and a dog, author Ann Bausum vividly depicts conditions on the front, the horrors of trench warfare, and the experiences of the human soldiers, while portraying Stubby's contribution to the effort."
