Flight technician Frank Williams and Judy, a purebred pointer, met in the most unlikely of places: a World War II internment camp in the Pacific. Fiercely loyal, Judy had a keen ability to sense friend and foe. The pair's relationship deepened throughout their captivity, and when the prisoners suffered beatings, Judy repeatedly risked her life to intervene. Her survival became a beacon of hope for all the men. World War IPs only official canine POW, Judy lived the rest of her life with Frank, who would never own another dog. Book jacket.
