"No Better Friend" by Robert Weintraub about a WWII Dog

No Better Friend by Robert Weintraub is about one man, one dog, and their extraordinary story of courage and survival in WWII.  WOW!  This book is so good!  My review will not do it justice, but I will try.  Two British sailors were looking for a mascot for their gunboat.  They fell in love with Judy, a fiercely loyal dog, Right away! This took place just as World War II was about to begin.  Judy was right in the midst of the battle.  She had a relationship with all the men but formed a strong bond with a sailor named Frank. 

This book takes you through World War II.  The writing made me feel as though I were right there with them.  The adventures that Judy and Frank go through are really something!  I enjoyed this book very much!  Judy put her life on the line for the men so many times!  What a dog!  What a book!
(Gerard's review, 5++ stars)

Teaser from page 5:  "Swim"! Frank yelled to Judy, while giving her one last push that sent her flying out the porthole.  Below, the ocean was roiling and filling with oil and debris from the dying ship.
