MASCOTS by Fairfax Downey


Email this review


Thirty-one short-shorts of memorable animals who were military mascots- in ancient Egypt, in Charlemagne's army, in the British forces, and in the American fighting corps in action from 1812 to Korea- these should have their fascination for the animal minded. Fantastic are the stories and brave the feats- as Rameses II's battle lion swings into action; as Kentucky the pig travels faithfully with the Army in 1812; as the parapooches jump in Korea.
