Summary

The Sunday Times top ten best seller.

Thousands of lives have been saved by this spaniel. He is a best friend in dog's clothing. An RAF dog with his mossy feet firmly on the ground. A brave dog who has served his colleagues and his country with unstinting devotion. A dog in a million.

This is the story of the partnership of Buster and Will, told by Will himself, describing how each came to save the other's life. This is a relationship that produced some heroic feats in the dust and desert heat of Afghanistan - and beyond. Buster, uniquely, has served five tours of duty - more than any other military dog.

'With some dogs you share a boil-in-the-bag breakfast and maybe a blanket on a cold desert floor. Some you wouldn't leave in charge of your Grandma unless you wanted to find out just how fast the old girl could run. But if you're very, very lucky, there will be the one dog you would lay down your life for - and for me that dog is Buster.'

As told to Isabel George.

I absolutely loved every minute of this book.

I would thoroughly recommend this book. As a Springer Spaniel owner, I could associate with the unconditional love these dogs give and their almost too human qualities at times.
Buster was a real hero.

This book was a lovely book to listen to, my husband was in the army at the same time and had Hus legs unjered. It is a good insight in what really goes on as a private, because all you here us from the too people in the army, the dogs and the privates are the real hero's. My husband could tell you a lot of stories.
