“Haunted Heart is a thoroughly respectful overview of King's life, and a great starter biography for new fans.”

“Dogs jumping from airplanes, dogs sacrificing their lives to save their handlers, dogs patrolling dense tropical jungles?such heroics may seem the stuff of animation fantasy, but Lisa Rogak’s The Dogs of War documents the real-life valor of canine warriors.

– The Washington Post
“Rogak's The Dogs of War sheds light on why the dog, more than any other animal, holds a special place in our history, and our hearts. The most comprehensive book I have ever read on the subject of military dogs, it exemplifies the indomitable spirit of the dog itself, ever selfless, loyal to a fault.”
– Steve Duno, author of Last Dog on the Hill
