Flight technician Frank Williams and Judy, a purebred pointer, met in the most unlikely of places: a World War II internment camp in the Pacific.  Judy was a fiercely loyal dog, with a keen sense for who was friend and who was foe and the pair's relationship deepened throughout their captivity.  Judy's devotion to those she was interned with was matched by their love for her, which helped keep the men and their dog alive despite the ever-present threat of death by disease or the rifles of the guards. Their story--of an unbreakable bond forged in the worst circumstances--is one of the great undiscovered sagas of World War II.
