{Strays: C. Alexander London}



{Synopsis} – Man's best friend goes to war.

Chuck and Ajax are partners, and they're good at their job. Chuck leads Ajax through the jungles of Vietnam, and Ajax sniffs out hidden, deadly traps before they can hurt US soldiers.

The war is almost over now, and the Army is grateful for Chuck's service. They want to give him a medal. But their plans for Ajax are less noble.

Suddenly, Chuck is forced to answer two impossible questions: Is his loyalty to Ajax or to the US Army? And just how far is he willing to go to protect his partner?

DOG TAGS is a series of stand-alone books, each exploring the bond between soldier and dog in times of war.

{My thoughts} – “quixotic [kwik-sot-ik] – exceedingly idealistic; unrealistic and impractical.”

Chuck and Ajax are partners in this book. Chuck is Ajax handler and well, they have bonded a lot. Their bond is incredible and each would follow the other where ever they may choose to lead them. The trust of a dog and its handler shows no bounds and that is proven throughout this book.

A vast majority of the book is getting to understand the relationship between Ajax and Chuck and then the rest of those that are serving right along side of them. Ajax is a wonderful dog with a bright future if he and Chuck can manage to survive the war that is taking place around them.

In his down time he reads the book called Don Quixote and ends up going on a similar type journey. If you’d like to find out what happens on their adventure during the Vietnam War you will need to read the book. It is well worth the read for any child that is interested in learning things about the Vietnam War. It has some factual information thrown in with the fiction of the story. I look forward to letting my child read this book in the very near future.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
