On D-Day, Emile Corteil was parachuted into France like thousands of other paratroopers, but Emile has with him his dog, Glen.  Jack is determined to discover their fate and in so doing he learns some important lessons….

‘D-Day Dog’ is another excellent story by Tom Palmer, a brilliant historic investigation but also full of very real characters and contemporary resonance.  We recommend this wonderful title to Bookwagon readers.
