The books prologue states:
“Jan, a Czech refugee who joined the French Air Force in the war as an air gunner, was shot down over Germany. While sheltering in a farmhouse he found a motherless Alsatian pup, and decided to adopt it. Their adven- tures getting back to the French line were the first of many they were to share during the next thirteen years. Jan named the pup Antis. After the fall of France Jan, with six other Czechs and Antis, managed to make their way south. At Sète they were engaged by some high-ranking army officers to fly to Algiers. Shot down over the sea, Jan and Antis were rescued by an Italian convoy, only to be sunk by a British warship, and again rescued. Safely arrived in England, Jan was accepted for training by the R.A.F., and managed to evade the Service regulation for- bidding pets in camp! His first operational flight over enemy territory was made with Antis stowed away in the bomber. In all, Antis made seven of these trips, and was twice wounded in doing so. After the war Jan returned to Czecho- slovakia with Antis. Their adventures during this period provide some of the most exciting incidents in the whole book. The story ends with the death of Antis at thirteen. By then he had become the first non-British dog to win the Dickin Medal-the animal's V.C”
