This nonfiction book tells the story of a lost dog who became the mascot for a reconnaissance suadron in the Pacific in WWII The story is told in an easy to read flowing manner and feels almost like a fiction novel There are a couple errors with grammar and historical names but not many I really enjoyed the story of Smoky a tiny Yorkshire Terrier who enlivened the rough days at war for many soldiers served as the first official therapy dog ran cables under a runway won a mascot competition was aboard a ship that was attacked by kamikazes and flew onboard a PBY Catalina on search and rescue missions This book tells both Smoky s story and the story of her owner Bill Wynne and of the 26th reconnaissance suadron which is interesting because most books about WWII fliers focus on the fighting side of the war and not the planning side Smoky was the recipient of many awards and there are memorials to her in several states in the United States as well as in Australia where she served to cheer up wounded troops

review Smoky the Brave º PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook That she didn't understand commands in either Japanese or English A mystery she was soon adopted by US Army Air Force Corporal William Bill Wynne an air crewman in a photo reconnaissance suadron and became something of a lucky charm for Wynne's unit When Smoky saved Wynne's life by barking a warning of an incoming shell as their landing craft approached an enemy held beach he nicknamed her the angel from a foxhole Smoky's exploits continued when she famously jumped with the unit in a specially designed parachute But her most heroic feat of the war was running a cable through a seven. The story of Smoky which actually starts midway certainly does warm your heart The ending of the book provides the perfect surprise which answers a nagging uestion that stays unanswered throughout the book I expected about the little dog though whereas there is a substantial amount of description about the war in the Eastern theatre Perhaps the narrative wouldn t make sense without it and that level of detail about the soldiers was needed Still this is a lovely story that once again illustrates the wonder of dogs and that their intelligence spirit and love towers no matter what breed or size they may be
