The heroic dogs trained to aid wounded WWI soldiers caught between the lines.

Non-Fiction 1918 1 mins


From pigeons to horses, animals shouldered more than their share of the burden on the WWI Fronts. These dogs are just a few of the many being trained to rescue wounded soldiers caught between the lines. Heroic stories like these were catnip for newsreels looking for heartwarming stories for audiences back home - although the soldiers shown here not British but belong to one of her allies.
