  • Description from Chamberlain Bros:
    No matter where in history one turns, pets are always an important part of life. In Caroline Tiger's new book, General Howe's Dog: George Washington, the Battle of Germantown, and the Dog Who Crossed Enemy Lines, Tiger delves into the historical account of General George Washington during the Revolutionary War as proper breeding takes precedence in an unusual military footnote of civility under fire.

    General Howe's Dog will take a glimpse into the gentlemanly upbringing and the military ascension of George Washington and William Howe. Both share an infinite love of dogs and during the war, Washington sends a letter to General Howe, accompanied by General Howe's dog, who had apparently crossed enemy lines.

    After the Battle of Germantown, General George Washington came across a stray dog wearing an inscribed collar marking him as the propery of British general William Howe---the very man Washington was trying to defeat. As a well-bred gentleman and man of his times, Washington did the proper thing; he returned the dog to his adversary along with a polite note.
