Bloody Violent History

An Irish Terrier - Dogs of War, #3 of 100 Bloody Objects

Episode Summary

A Remembrance Day tribute to Dogs that served and died for us in war

Episode Notes

During the Great War, thousands of dogs were sent to the Western Front to patrol, guard, catch rats and carry messages.  It is an extraordinary story of courage and sacrifice and the contribution these beloved animals had in sustaining morale and keeping spirits high.  In particular, it tells of the Irish Terriers who seemed almost the perfect breed for the hardship and rigours of the trenches.
