    Judy, a pointer dog, died in Tanzania on February 17, 1950 at the age of 14.

    Certainly no ordinary dog, she spent much of her life with the British military in the Pacific Theatre of World War II. She heroically saved drowning men and survived Japanese prisoner of war camps. The story of Judy and her beloved human, Airman Frank Williams, is told in this new book for young readers. No Better Friend: a Man, a Dog, and Their Incredible True Story of Friendship and Survival in World War II, by Robert Weintraub, published by Little in 2016, ages 10-14, 291 pp., BTSB# 929682, $19.61, good reviews by SLJ and Booklist. Tells the incredible true story of Frank Williams, a radarman in Britain's Royal Air Force, and Judy, a purebred pointer, who met as prisoners of war during World War II. Judy, who became the war's only official canine POW, was a fiercely loyal dog who sensed danger--warning her fellow prisoners of imminent attacks and, later, protecting them from brutal beatings. Frank and Judy's friendship, an unbreakable bond forged in the worst circumstances, is one of the great recently uncovered stories of World War II.
