In Afghanistan, sometimes all that stands between coalition troops and death or serious injury is a dog. Highly trained dogs and their handlers search for improvised explosive devices or hidden weapons out on patrol with combat troops.

It’s a perilous job, often putting them right in the firing line, and making them high priority targets for the Taliban insurgents they’re fighting.

Shane Bryant, a former Australian Army dog handler, spent 10 years in Afghanistan working with elite American special forces and training other handlers and dogs. War Dogs is his story – a riveting true account of the hidden war in the mountains and cities of the world’s most dangerous conflict, and the comradeship between man and dog that has saved numerous lives.

This re-released updated edition of War Dogs by 
Shane Bryant & Tony Park looks at the effects a decade of service as a contractor had on Shane, his personal life and his mental health as he faced a new enemy: post-traumatic stress disorder.

RRP: $7.51 (paperback) from Amazon Australia
