War Animals: The Unsung Heroes of WWII

Lecture and book signing by the author Robin Hutton

**Note that this program will be held in the Great Hall at Wolfeboro Town Hall


War Animals tells the heart-warming stories of the dogs, horses, mules, pigeons – and even one cat – who did their bit for the war effort. They kept up morale, rushed machine gun nests, and even sacrificed themselves picking up live grenades. American and British families volunteered their beloved family pets to aid the war effort; many of these gallant animals received the prestigious Dickin Medal, the “animals Victoria Cross”.


Robin Hutton spent her adult life working in event production and the motion picture business. She is the best-selling author of Sgt. Reckless: America’s War Horse, and president of Angels Without Wings, Inc., a non-profit corporation spearheading the dedication of three national monuments to Sgt. Reckless. She was named Patriotic Citizen of the Year by the Military Order of the Purple Heart. She lives in Santa Rosa Valley CA.
