Acquired from kennels in pre-Second World War Shanghai by British sailors, Judy - a purebred pointer - became the mascot of a gunboat patrolling the Yangtze River and was soon at war with, and captured by, the Japanese. One of her fellow captives managed to persuade the commandant to let him keep her, and she became the only official canine PoW. This book tells the extraordinary story of her resilience, bravery and loyalty during internment and a series of adventures including shipwrecks and jungle treks.
