Canine soldiers : the militarization of love( Visual )

3 editions published between 2016 and 2019 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Canine Soldiers is the first war documentary told from the point of view of a soldier/dog team, molding together their poignant stories with reflections from notable animal scholars who think outside the box about the significance of co-species evolution. Relying on dogs to keep us safe in war is only the continuation of a long history of co-evolution with canines. Even in this age of advanced technology, we are again relying on a "primitive" animal's superior sense of smell to survive. The film also raises the ethical question: Is coopting a sentient being in conflicts that involve violence ever justifiable?" -- Container
