Event Details

Millions rallied to the cause of freedom against Nazism and the menace of Imperial Japan. But did you know that some of those heroes had fur, or feathers? War animals guarded American coasts against submarine attack, dug out Londoners trapped in bomb wreckage, and carried vital messages under heavy fire on Pacific islands. They kept up morale, rushed machine gun nests, and even sacrificed themselves picking up live grenades.
Join author Robin Hutton as she shares the amazing stories our wartime animal heroes.

This program will be held in-person with a remote option through Zoom. All details are available here: https://www.fortlibrary.org/war-animals/
