Summary "In the winter of 1939 in the cold snow of no-man's-land, two loners met and began an extraordinary journey. One was an orphaned puppy, abandoned as his owners fled Nazi forces. The other was Czech airman Robert Bozdech, who found the tiny German shepherd he named "Ant" after being shot down on a daring mission over enemy lines. Robert hid Ant inside his jacket as he escaped. The pair would save each other's lives countless times as they flew together, and by the end of the war Robert and Ant had become British war heroes"--Back cover.
