To mark the publication of the new edition of Jock of the Great War, this time with a soft cover, we have decided to present Derek Jacobi‘s exquisite reading of the text and beautiful illustrations by Judy Tucker.
People say it is a book that you can’t put down and you will return to read again and again.
It is a moving story set in the New Forest in Hampshire and describes the huge changes made to people’s lives when war with the Germans broke out in 1914. It is a tale of inspiring courage and patriotic devotion to duty. But above all, it is a salute to the animals and especially the dogs who served in the trenches.
Jock is our hero.
He is an irresistible Irish Terrier who will capture your heart and stay there forever.
